The UAPB/AM&N National Alumni Association proudly announces the return of the Alumni King and Queen Contest.
In previous years, the National Alumni Association held an annual fundraising drive in the form of an Alumni King and Queen Contest. While originally serving the sole purpose of generating funds for the Alumni Association, today this endeavor has evolved into broader purposes that include:
- Providing for visibility to national priorities established for alumni giving and fundraising;
- Increasing communications to individuals and chapters on behalf of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) and the National Alumni Association;
- Identifying individuals to serve as goodwill ambassadors for the National Alumni Association;
- Soliciting funds for the National Alumni Association to support UAPB;
- Generating interest and enthusiasm for the National Alumni Association and UAPB as it culminates to the Homecoming Events; and
- Performing numerous functions for the National Alumni Association.
All alumni with an active membership in the National Alumni Association and a local Chapter, if there is an active one located within a 50-mile radius of the prospective candidate, are eligible to become candidates for Alumni King or Queen. Candidates (except for members-at-large) must be endorsed by active chapters, and must be certified for candidacy by the National Alumni Association. Members-at-large will seek endorsement from the national office.
All campaign fundraising proceeds will benefit the National Alumni Association.
The deadline to apply is Friday, June 23, 2023. The application form may be downloaded by clicking here.
The campaign begins on Saturday, July 1, 2023 and ends on Monday, October 2, 2023.
