Candidacy Statement
The AOG lacks relevance. The numbers speak for themselves: 40% of graduates opt out of membership. Only 25% of members vote. This means that only 15% of graduates are engaged with the AOG. The numbers are even worse for classes graduating after 1990, presenting risk to the AOG’s future. As a board member, I can help craft a strategic vision and put the resources in place to restore relevance to the AOG by better serving graduates. I have successfully executed similar transformative strategies in the corporate sector and recruited by professional investors to transform their portfolio companies. Let’s get started!
