The Council of Representatives (CoR) is a legal body to help our alumni association in the day to day functions. It has members from alumni and students. The council will represent interests of alumni, students, faculty and staff for our alumni association.
Our association has 3-tier structure: bottom is 8,500 (current) registered members, CoR with 100-200 members and top is Board of Directors (BoD) with 17 Directors.
BoD makes all executive decision and directs the working of our organization. CoR members elect BoD and help them in making informed decision.
Thus the responsibility of CoR members will be (“alumni” include alumni, students, faculty and staff):
-To elect BoD by voting process
-To help BoD in making day-to-day decisions
-To discuss about any alumni related issues such as alumni projects, funding, chapters, etc.
-To act as a communication link between BoD and members
-To vote on key issues as and when needed
-To put forward problems faced by own community (from class/department)
The term for CoR member is for two years and next election is planned for the end of 2012. Once elected, a CoR student member shall serve for full two years, even if he/she leaves college earlier.
Most of the work involves participation in discussion by email exchange.
