The Concordia College Alumni Association sustains and advances Concordia’s mission by strengthening the relationship between the college and its alumni, and alumni and students, thus exemplifying the Christian life and mindfully engaging the broader world. The National Alumni Board consists of a president, past president, vice president, secretary and four subcommittees focused on engagement, enrollment, giving and career.

Board members serve a four-year term, with the exception of officers, and are recommended by peers.
