Alumni Board

The Terry Alumni Board serves in an advisory capacity to the dean and faculty of the University of Georgia Terry College of Business. Board Members promote and support Terry programs and activities in order to cultivate and encourage a continuing affiliation between and among former students and the institution.

Initiatives

Alumni Awards and Gala

The annual Terry Alumni Awards and Gala is the college’s signature event and one of UGA’s most exciting. Distinguished Terry alumni, outstanding young alumni, and Pinnacle Society inductees are honored in an awards ceremony, while the event also serves as a fundraiser for the college. Guests include some of the region’s most influential business men and women as well as sports celebrities and politicians.

Student of the Year

The emeritus members of the Terry Alumni Board annually honor a graduating senior with the “Student of the Year” award. This special award is presented at the spring Terry Honors Day ceremony to a student who best demonstrates the skills and commitment required to succeed in college, business, and life.

Terry Third Thursday

Terry Third Thursday is a breakfast speaker series for the Atlanta business community. This series features influential speakers, as well as special guests from the University of Georgia, who bring local and global perspectives on business and innovation.

Women's Conference

More than 225 alumnae and friends gather to hear insights from female executives and build their professional networks. Attendees, who range from students to CEOs, are treated to a keynote address from prominent female business leaders and hear panel discussions on entrepreneurship, work-life balance and social media.
