Greetings from the Adult Higher Education Alliance (AHEA)

Serving on the Board of the Alliance has been a wonderful personal and professional experience for me. Our work is interesting and engaging and contributes to advancing quality adult programs. We would enjoy having you join us. Our work is done through monthly conference calls and through email. We meet in person, once a year. This November we will be having our Business Meeting at the AAACE conference in Charleston, South Carolina which runs from November 4 – 7, 2014.

As an Alliance member we invite you to consider serving on the Board of Directors. We have twopositions which are up for election this year: president-elect and one director. In order to serve on the Board you must be a member in good standing.

Following is a summary of the responsibilities for Board positions:

The President-Elect shall serve on the Board of Director for one year before assuming the position of President. The President-Elect shall become acting President, if the current President is absent or unable to fulfill the duties of President, and shall have all the rights, privileges, and power as if duly elected President. The person moves to Past President following presidency term. This is a three year commitment.
