What is the SCAA?
The SCAA is the Stonecoast Alumni Association, which was formed to keep Stonecoast graduates professionally connected, sponsor alumni events, and raise the profile of Stonecoast alumni through net-working opportunities, tracking alumni publications and maintaining a presence within Stonecoast through collaborative activities at residencies and reunions. The SCAA is represented by a Board of Directors that is elected by the general alumni community according to the organization’s Charter. https://stonecoastcommunity.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/scaa-charter-w08.pdf
How are the SCAA Board of Directors elected?
The SCAA Board is voted on by the Stonecoast alumni body according to the terms of the SCAA Charter. Please see the Charter for election and governance details. Generally speaking, each position comes with a 2 year, staggered term to ensure that continuing members are in place to help train and guide new members through the Board’s processes.Elections are held prior to the July alumni meeting or at the July Alumni Meeting, and newly elected members begin their terms at the close of the Alumni Meeting.
