Spirit Alumni Board
The Spirit Alumni Board shall serve in an advisory capacity to the Spirit Program for matters affecting the Spirit Alumni. The board shall be responsible for making recommendations to the Spirit Program Director regarding programs, services, advisement, policies, and/or procedures that impact the engagement and connection of Spirit Alumni.
The mission of the board is to support the Texas Tech Spirit Program as well as build and grow relationships with Spirit Alumni members.
Meetings will be held electronically (Zoom) at least three times a calendar year, including a summer meeting, homecoming (early fall) meeting, and winter/spring meeting. Additional meetings may be called for if business needs to happen related to an event or project.
Copies of all minutes and reports will be provided to all committee members. Subcommittees, as appropriate, can be utilized to assist the Board.
The Spirit Program Director serves as a non-voting, resource person for the committee and assists in coordination of meetings, soliciting agenda items, establishing an agenda, and coordinating minutes from each meeting.
The Spirit Program Director will appoint members each August. Members may serve multiple terms. A member must be a Texas Tech graduate serving at least two years on at least one Texas Tech Spirit Squads during their time at Texas Tech.
Current head coaches, and possible assistant coaches, will serve as members on the board.
A committee chairperson is appointed by the Alumni Board every two years. Chairpersons can serve multiple terms.
