Alumni Advisory Committee

What is the AAC?

The Alumni Advisory Committee is a group established by the University of Newcastle Act.

The AAC's role is to represent the University of Newcastle's body of convocation by providing advice on University strategy, policy and activities affecting UON alumni.

Members of the AAC are elected by the alumni of the University at an annual general meeting.

Why be involved?

The University will celebrate its 50thanniversary in 2015. The AAC will play a role in shaping alumni celebrations throughout the year.

Members of the AAC also provide advice on the selection of graduate members of the University Council. They are the face of the annual Alumni Awards, and provide advice to the Office of Alumni and External Relations on alumni policy. They are the first community members consulted on major changes to the University's direction.

How much time will it take?

AAC members agree to attend six breakfast meetings per year for two years.

You may also like to nominate for various subcommittees and activities as the opportunity arises during the course of the AAC's business.

What is Convocation?

Convocation, commonly referred to as alumni, consists of UON graduates, current and former members of the University Council, current and former staff of the University, and graduates and past council members of UON's antecedent institutions.


The 2014 AGM will be held at Callaghan campus at 5.30pm on Tuesday 11 November
