Who We Are

All Grand Valley State University students are members of the Future Alumni Association!

Students can choose to be a general member (automatic membership) or increase their involvement by joining a committee or the FAA executive board.

General members are invited to attend FAA sponsored events including professional development and alumni engagement opportunities and receive communications from the Future Alumni Association.

Committee Members take part in planning organization events and are given special benefits for their involvement, including exclusive invites to programs and an alumni mentor. Each committee is led by one or more officers of the executive board. 

The executive board officers and advisor are listed below, for more specific information on committees and general members please visit our Member Directory!
