BAFF Alumni Leadership Opportunities

The vitality of the BAFF alumni community is made possible through active contributions of time, expertise, and resources of community members. BAFF has established the following volunteer leadership opportunities for BAFF alumni who have completed their programs in good standing.

BAFF Alumni Council

This is a volunteer, a high-level leadership development opportunity with responsibility for advancing a self-sustaining alumni community under mentorship from the BAFF Board of Directors. Alumni Council members will develop the strategic plan and manage execution of ongoing Baltic-based alumni programming and engagement. Working closely with BAFF staff, the Alumni Council reports directly to the BAFF Alumni Affairs Committee, co-chaired by two members of the Board of Directors.

The Council meets three times per year, in person as circumstances allow, in advance of BAFF BOD meetings. Serving on the Alumni Council requires 8-12 hours per month in meeting time, committee and taskforce work, and event participation. BAFF supports Alumni Council participation by covering meeting travel expenses during the term of service.

Council responsibilities may include:

Alumni Council members serve staggered two-year terms.

The BAFF Alumni Affairs Committee will review the applications of all interested in Alumni Council positions and will propose a slate to the BAFF Board of Directors for their approval.

Volunteering provides the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with fellow alumni across cohorts, industries, and countries as well as to connect with BAFF in a personal way.

BAFF Ambassadors agree to serve a one-year renewable term and volunteer a minimum of 12 hours per year. Serving as a BAFF Ambassador meets the Professional Internship Program requirement to perform 8 hours of volunteer service within one year of returning from the U.S.
