Past Alumni Association Presidents

The Past Presidents of the Alumni Association serve as emeritus members of the Board of Directors.

Join the Board

Board volunteers are expected to attend board of directors meetings, serve on Association committees, attend events sponsored by the Association, join as a dues-paying member of the Association, be available to the university to host official guests on an as needed basis, and make a personal financial donation to the university. Prospective board members are interviewed and appointed each June. Board members serve a three year term. Additional information about service on the board of directors can be requested from Shellie Hadvina, Interim Director for Alumni Relations.

Each year, hundreds of CSUN alumni volunteer to serve the university. Explore volunteer opportunities.
