Mission Statement: The goal of the Skidmore Polo Club Alumni Advisory Board is to provide mentorship, leadership, and consistency of management and operations to the student run Skidmore Polo Club. The SPCAAB will help student officers of the Club transition the program as students naturally come into and graduate from the team. The SPCAAB will provide a network of dedicated alumni who have a breadth of equine and business knowledge and ability to provide mentorship and leadership to the officers of the Skidmore Polo Club as well as to coaching staff.
Skidmore Polo Club Alumni Advisory Board Member Responsibility: The Skidmore Polo Club Alumni Advisory Board will meet or conference call at time of formation and will gather for a formal meeting with current and incoming Skidmore Polo Club officers each year on Skidmore Polo Alumni Weekend.
In addition each Skidmore Polo Club Alumni Advisory Board member will be responsible for mentoring and advising student leaders who are responsible for one or more of six areas identified as needing support: budget, horse care, string management, coach/venue agreements, alumni outreach and USPA grant research. Mentoring/advising will involve checking in with the student leader(s) responsible for one or more of these areas on a regular basis by email and/or phone.
