Election Information

Every year, the Tufts Alumni Association holds elections for Alumni Trustee and Alumni Council positions.

While the Alumni Association accepts nominations for Alumni Trustee and Alumni Council positions at any time during the year, a formal call for nominations is sent out to the alumni body in late summer/early fall each year. The Nominating Committee reviews the nominations and selects candidates for election in the fall. Elections open to the alumni body are held in February/March of the following year.

Please submit any nominations for Alumni Trustee or Alumni Council positions online.
