Alumni Association Executive Committee

Dear Riverdale Alumni,

Welcome to the Alumni Association Executive Committee (AAEC) page! Riverdale's AAEC represents the interests and activities of the school's alumni body. Members are encouraged to sustain loyalty and enthusiasm as well as to help develop programs, initiatives, and events that promote the general welfare of the school and increase alumni participation in both events and annual giving.

For a list of 2017-18 members, click here. We are always looking to ensure broad representation of alumni class years and decades on the AAEC. If you are interested in possibly becoming a member, please contact Robin Gottlieb, Director of Alumni Affairs, for more information.

I hope you will stay involved and connected as an alum, and I look forward to seeing you at future Riverdale events.
