The Alumni Association is governed by an executive board of alumni volunteers who serve as a link between alumni and HCHC. Meeting bi-annually, the Council reviews budgets, sets long-term plans, and creates and approves the annual program plans for the Association. Members serve a two-year term, and the Council appoints its own executive officers. Membership on the Council is the highest level of volunteer service available in the Association. The Council consists of one clergy representative, one lay representative, and one alternate from each GOA Metropolis. Other jurisdictions who have alumni educated at HCHC are welcome to send one clergy representative, one lay representative, and one alternate as well.
