The Alumni Exec currently consists of 5 members, in addition to an NBC staff member who serves as staff liason. Each executive member serves a 2 year term, and can be re-elected for a second 2 year term if they so wish. After a one year absence past executive members are welcome to re-run for a position on the Exec. The Alumni Executive seeks to serve the Alumni Association by helping it reach its stated purposes in the Alumni Constitution.

This is a volunteer position. The hours put into this job can widely vary depending on the current Executive, how much each Exec is willing to put into the position, and many varying other conditions. The main time-consuming responsibility of Alumni Executive in recent years has been planning and organizing Alumni Weekend, held every November at the college.
