UMD Smith Alumni Board

About the Smith Alumni Board

The Alumni Chapter Board (ACB) and the Young Alumni Council (YAC) recently joined forces to establish the UMD Smith Alumni Board. The UMD Smith Alumni Board (SAB) is a volunteer board for the Office of Alumni Relations that advocates on behalf of Smith School alumni. SAB members are ambassadors who promote the school to the greater alumni community and carry out the board's mission and strategic plan.

The mission of the Smith Alumni Board is to support the vision of the Robert H. Smith School of Business by creating a vibrant alumni experience and fostering lifelong relationships between the school and the alumni community.

The Smith Alumni Board aligns its goals with that of the strategic vision set forth by the Smith School Dean. All initiatives and programs will be in line with the strategic plan for the School and the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
