General Alumni Association

Exeter’s alumni body consists of approximately 22,000 former students and graduates, all of whom are members of the General Alumni Association (GAA). A board of 24 elected and appointed directors represent the GAA and are led by an executive committee of four officers. The GAA president and two vice presidents also serve as Academy trustees.

Throughout the year, GAA directors work with each other and with other Exeter alumni volunteers to help strengthen alumni connections with Exeter.  The Academy invites GAA officers and directors, and all alumni volunteers, to Exeter Leadership Weekend, a two-day event in the fall when volunteers hear from Academy leadership and receive training for the work they do to represent Exeter in their regions and among their classmates. Fall of 2020 Exeter Leadership Weekend and its associated activities will be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
