About WCEAN

Executive Committee

The Executive Leadership Committee evolves and grows every year to better serve alumni and stakeholders. We are thrilled to have determined alumni propel generations of entrepreneurs with our organization’s core values Growth, Innovation, Community, and Leadership.

To Join WCEAN Leadership

Requirements

The role of the Executive Leadership Committee is to fulfill the goals and mission of WCEAN as stated in our Constitution until the end of their term. We are a volunteer-based nonprofit organization and each Executive Leadership Committee is required to serve 2-year terms (July 1, 2021 - July 1, 2023). To continue the alumni engagement we have created, we request the new Leadership Committee to execute at least 2 events a year that fulfill our mission, raise funds for the organization, and support the program we graduated from – the Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship. 


Former executive directors will provide you with the tools and knowledge to lead and make a greater impact. The main focus for your team will be funding and onboarding alumni to the new Membership Portal (coming soon!).

 

We have potential partners and alumni who are interested in creating a start-up/business grant or competition, and it will be up to you on what kind of legacy you and your team would like to create.

Other minor requirements: 

  • Must be a graduate of the Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship.
