Why I wish to serve: If Elected President, my plan for DUNAA can be broken down into 3 categories

Strategic Planning

  1. Survey members for their desires for the future of DUNAA

  2. Assemble a team of alums with experience in planning, marketing, finance, and DUNAA’s history to assist in re-branding DUNAA

  3. Comprehensive review of current practices, board structure, and programs for opportunities of growth or change

  4. Use Standard Operating Procedures once updated

  5. Have stronger DUNAA representation at ALL Dillard and UNCF events and conferences, including local chapter events

  6. Have quarterly town-hall meetings with all alums

  7. Create a framework for DUNAA goals for 5 and 10 years from now.


  1. Create a committee to assist UNCF in establishing IAC Council in New Orleans, and other cities that currently don’t have IAC’s

  2. Identify potential partnerships with alums at major companies

  3. Seek at least one opportunity per year to partner with other National HBCUs

  4. Review and enhance how we support and work with our current chapters and their programs

Leadership Academy

  1. Perform yearly training for executive board members so that we can be one cohesive board

  2. Perform workshops during Dillard students senior year on how to transition from Dillard Students to Dillard Alumni

  3. Create a Dillard intern program for those interested in leadership opportunities, both seasoned alums and recent graduates

  4. Create a DUNAA mentor program for students and alums in their perspective fields.
