2018 Alumni Association Constitutional Changes

After several years of discussion, Reed's Alumni Board voted 20–5 to amend the constitution and bylaws of the Alumni Association on June 8, 2018 at Reunions 2018. In accordance with the current constitution, the College received more than 50 objections to the changes, thus triggering a ballot of the entire alumni community, which will take place in early 2019.
