Alumni Association Executive Committee

The Alumni Association Executive Committee (AAEC) is a group of up to 23 members who represent the graduate population of VTS to the Seminary. The task of the AAEC, in cooperation with the Dean and the Board of Trustees, is to communicate the current mission, needs, and decisions of the Seminary to its members, and to represent, on their behalf, their concerns about and experience in the Church's ministry to the Seminary. The AAEC seeks to support the work of the Seminary by also promoting appropriate programs for the nurture of its alumni and the Seminary community.
