Welcome to our newest leaders of the MAA! Their terms start July 1, 2023.

Your voice and perspectives are important in shaping the priorities and work of the MAA. Please share your thoughts in this short survey.
Current Board Priorities

The MAA Board of Directors meets regularly via Zoom and in person twice a year. Its work is guided by the MAA Constitution, which was most recently revised in 2016.
The Nominating Committee of the Middlebury Alumni Association selects a slate of candidates for alumni trustee open positions and for the MAA Board of Directors. Alumni trustees are Middlebury College alumni nominated by the Middlebury Alumni Association Board of Directors and presented to the Board of Trustees. Candidates are presented to the alumni association on an annual slate and serve five-year terms. Candidates for the MAA Board are also presented on an annual slate and serve two-year terms.
The board reviews nominations for and votes on the annual Alumni Achievement Awards and Alumni Plaque Award.
The Middlebury Alumni Association was founded in 1824, in order “to revive the collections of academic life—to cherish a laudable zeal for the advancement of literature and science and particularly for the prosperity of our Alma Mater.”
Today, MAA represents alumni from Middlebury College, Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, Language Schools, and Bread Loaf School of English.
Board of Directors
MAA is led by a board of directors, which focuses on the many ways alumni can stay engaged with Middlebury, including the alumni admissions program, alumni career services, regional programming, young alumni programs, academic programming, annual giving, diversity initiatives, alumni nominations, and communications.
