What is the Alumni Council?

The Alumni Council was founded in 1946 and is the governing body of the Andover-Abbot Alumni Association. The Council seeks to promote beneficial relations, especially by serving as a liaison between alumni and the Academy and by strengthening connections among alumni.

The Council includes approximately 140 members serving four-year terms. Each year 30-40 new members are appointed to replace those who complete their service. The new members are approved by the Executive Committee of the Council, acting upon a slate submitted by its Nominating Committee. Upon agreeing to serve, each new member is asked to join one of the Council’s eight standing committees.
