Elks Scholar Advisory Board

Calling All Leaders! - Are you interested in sharing your ideas to shape the future of the Elks scholar experience? Would you like to get to know other Elks scholars, Elks and ENF staff members? If so, we have a great opportunity for you! Join the Elks Scholar Advisory Board. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to get directly involved with the Elks National Foundation, become a member of a national board, and help us better serve Elks scholars.

The Elks Scholar Advisory Board is a group of Elks scholars - current and alumni - who advise the ENF on its scholar relation efforts. Currently, the Board is composed of eight members: one freshman, one sophomore, one junior, one senior, three at-large members, and the Elks Scholar Alum of the Year. Freshman, sophomore, junior and senior Board members serve for four years from the date they are appointed, at-large members serve for two-year staggered terms, and the Alum of the Year serves for one year.
