UW Alumni Association

Brown & Gold Council

Our alumni volunteers expand the capacity of the University of Wyoming Alumni Association work to engage alumni worldwide. With the growth in the number of alumni volunteers who are supporting the University of Wyoming through activities initiated by the Alumni Association, we will recognize the collective effort of these volunteers in the Brown and Gold Council and tap into their experience to inform the board of their experience in their spheres of influence.

Description and Duties

The Brown & Gold Council will consist of Network/Chapter leaders and champions who support the Association and its programs in matters including, but not limited to, student recruitment, alumni outreach, alumni career support, social gatherings, and community outreach.  

Selection and Appointment

In advance of a regularly scheduled board meeting, the Executive Director will submit, to the Vice President of the Board, a nomination form and supporting documentation for leaders and champions to be appointed to the Brown and Gold Council.

The candidates must be willing to continue to be ambassadors for the Association and must be active and paid members of the Association. The board will consider the nominations at a regular scheduled board meeting. Those candidates receiving a majority of the votes of the board members will become members of the Brown and Gold Council. 


Members shall serve one-two (2) year term with the opportunity to be considered for subsequent terms as long as he/she is willing to be an ambassador for the University, is a voting member of the Association and is meeting expectations.  The board will consider nominations for re-appoint of qualified members at a regularly scheduled board meeting.


Members of the Brown & Gold Council will be invited to the spring and fall board meetings with time set aside for both networking with the board and sharing their individual experiences, ideas and concerns. It is anticipated that the Council will have its first meeting with the BOD no later than April 2020 at the Spring UWAA meeting.
