AUPFA Board of Directors Application

Application Process

The Auburn University Parent & Family Association (AUPFA) is now accepting applications from current members who are interested in serving on the Board of Directors.

The mission of the AUPFA is to provide both members and Auburn University with suitable programs and services that satisfactorily address both family and campus needs.


Specific objectives for the AU Parent & Family Association are:

  1. To have ongoing dialogue with parents about Auburn’s programs, services, and facilities (Inform);
  2. To provide a network in which parents can seek help and advice (Support);
  3. To facilitate and involve parents in campus activities, both on and off, to develop community (Engage).

In the selection of membership to the board, consideration will be given to geographic and class representation. The objective is to obtain representation that mirrors the diverse student population. All selected board members shall hold office for three years, provided that they have a student attending Auburn University. Members are expected to attend 3 meetings each year.

The Board of Directors Winter Retreat will take place at Auburn University beginning the evening of Thursday, January 23 and concluding at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 24. All new board members are required to attend. Board members serve on AUPFA working committees. They also help plan and work at AUPFA events including move-in events and Fall Family Weekend. Board members are assigned to a region and communicate with other Auburn parents in that region to answer questions and relate personal experiences.

This cycle we are especially interested in applications from the following regions:

  • Talons: TX
  • Foy: DC, DE, MD, NJ, VA
  • Samford: GA
  • Tiger: AR, IL, IA, LA, MS, MN, MO, WI
