Board of Overseers and HAA Board of Directors Elections
WHEN: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 - ALL DAY
WHERE: VIRTUAL EVENT
RSVP: Look for your email from Harvard for your personalized voting information - will be sent on April 1.
On April 1, voting begins for the Harvard Board of Overseers and Harvard Alumni Association Board of Directors. To encourage Canadian alumni to vote in the elections we will be holding a "virtual" day of voting. We will send a reminder to vote and share information about the process, why it's important, and information about the candidates. Find out more about what the Board of Overseers and HAA Board does.
Why your vote matters
As international alumni, we offer a unique perspective for Harvard and want to encourage you to vote and ensure our international voice is heard. Typically, international alumni vote less frequently than US-based alumni and COVID-19 has showed how important the global perspective is for the University.
