The Board of Visitors Engagement Committee seeks to "engage" the membership by continuously seeking ways to get them involved. While certainly an honor to be appointed, Board of Visitors membership isn't intended to simply be an honorary role. We want to make a difference. As such, we believe for the member to have a fulfilling experience and be successful in the Board's overall goal of advancing the University, they must be effective. To be effective, they must be active. The Engagement Committee seeks to get them connected so that they can then find those areas to serve that they feel most passionate about. Some specific initiatives include maintaining the future Candidate Watch List and seeking ways to increase the visibility and public awareness of the Board of Visitors.
Legislative Advocacy Committee
The Board of Visitors Legislative Advocacy Committee seeks to support the UNC Board of Governors, the ECU Board of Trustees, and the Office of the Chancellor in promoting the university's budget and policy agenda before the North Carolina General Assembly. The committee members use their personal contacts and connections from around the state to educate elected officials on the many positive contributions ECU makes to the state of North Carolina.
