Society Board Nominations

Join the Cambridge Society of Washington DC Board!

Nominations are now closed for 2012, however if you would like to organize or help out with an event please see our Call for Volunteers.


Do you ever look at the newsletter and think “I wish there were more events!” Well now’s your chance to do something about it!

Every year, beginning in mid-September and ending with our Homecoming Drinks (the first Thursday of October) we elect new alumni to serve on the Society Board. We are now seeking nominations for the various offices of the Society Board as well as people willing to help organize events.

We are seeking nominees for President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. These four key positions will be put to vote, if we receive multiple nominees.

We are also seeking 4-6 Associate Vice Presidents. These are the key organizers who help to run events (such as the Boat Race, Burns Night, Garden Party), send out the newsletter, update the website, and so on. These positions are unlikely to be put to vote – we want to capture all the interest and enthusiasm we can for our alumni society.

No experience is necessary. The workload is generally quite light (if everyone pulls their weight!) but does require commitment and especially to specific events if you express interest in organizing them.

How do I nominate?

Here’s what to do. In order to nominate yourself or a fellow alum, please write to David Humphries, Chairman of the Board of Directors (the separate body that oversees the Society in its 501 (c)(3) status), explaining why the nominee would be good for the position. If you are interested in being an Associate Vice President, please write briefly to explain your interest, what event(s) you would be interested in helping to run, any specialist skills or interests (webmasters encouraged!). Please email your nominations to

DEADLINE for NOMINATIONS: September 15th.

Voting will start shortly thereafter. We will send out an e-blast letting everyone know when you can begin to vote.
