About Us

Are you, or do you know, an alumna/us who wants to be more involved in your Alumni Association? Nominate yourself or someone else to become a member of the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Association Board of Directors.

The SUNY Oneonta Alumni Association’s mission is to connect, engage, support, and celebrate the graduates of SUNY Oneonta and cultivate pride in SUNY Oneonta. Our vision is to build a premier Alumni Association that sustains lifelong relationship with alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends that supports the success of SUNY Oneonta.

The Alumni Association Board of Directors is composed of up to 30 members representing various class years, majors, backgrounds, professions, geographic areas and residing throughout the United States. Alumni Association Board members are elected to a three-year term and may be re-elected to an optional second three-year term.

The Alumni Association Board of Directors meets quarterly, in October, January, April, and June. Meeting attendance and participation in associated on-campus activities is expected to be a priority. You are responsible for making your own travel plans and arrangements, and for payment of such expenses. Limited on-campus accommodations are provided through the Office of Alumni Engagement. Expenses may be deductible on your income taxes (see your tax advisor for details).

Each Board member is asked to serve on at least one committee of the Board. Since Board representation is throughout the state and nationwide, committees stay in touch via email and hold monthly meetings via Zoom Meetings.

All Members-At-Large are asked to contribute a financial gift to the Fund for Oneonta on a regular yearly basis. All Alumni Board members contribute at a level appropriate to their capability as donors. The Board strives for 100% donor history each year. (Giving is based on a fiscal year: July 1-June 30).
