Join a Committee
The UD DC Alumni Club is growing and we need your help! For those of you that want to help but don't have a lot of time, we've created two committees: the Social Committee and the University Committee. The Social Committee will help plan and run happy hours, game watches, cultural and similar events. The University Committee will help with our new community service and other UD engagements.

Committees are the easiest way to bring new ideas to the club as our membership is rapidly growing. If you have an interest, please email alumnet@udel.edu.

Join the Club Committee
Committee positions are currently available in 2014. Click here to view the position descriptions, and click here to print and fill out the application. Applications should be sent to lesliel@udel.edu along with an emailed letter of interest.
