Administrative History

The Brigham Young University Alumni Association (est. 1903) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the welfare of university and generating interest in the university among its alumni.

The Alumni Association was established in 1903 in a reorganization of the Brigham Young Academy Alumni Association, which had existed since 1893. During the years 1926-1938, it was generally known as the Associated Alumni of Brigham Young University. It has been an active member organization in the American Alumni Council since 1926. In 2009, the Alumni Association gave up its governing and fiduciary responsibilities and became an advisory body to the department of Alumni Relations.

The Alumni Association is headed by the executive committee of a board. Beginning in 1956, the governing body of the Alumni Association was the Alumni Council, an advisory committee composed of representatives from each stake and mission in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as ex officio members from various departments and divisions of Brigham Young University. Also included in the board are chapter and other directors acting under the direction of the executive committee. The Association is a volunteer organization closely associated with the Department of Alumni Relations. Beginning in 2009 the board reports directly to the university president.

Presidents of the organization have included Joseph R. Murdock (1903-1904), Anthony C. Lund (1904-1905), Stephen L. Chipman (1905-1906), J. Will Knight (1906-1907), William E.
