Alumni Advisory Boards

New Memphis graduates remain engaged in the life of the city in many ways. Embark and Fellows graduates are also invited to participate on alumni boards. Through the alumni boards, our graduates lead the direction New Memphis takes in recruiting, activating, and retaining talent. Questions about serving on an alumni board? Email Ruby Powell-Dennis.
