The Alumnae Association is governed by an elected Board of Directors

The administration and general management of the Association is vested in a board of directors, which is comprised of no fewer than 12 and no more than 26 voting directors. There are two officers: a president and a treasurer/secretary; and two program chairs: a chair of alumnae admission representatives and a chair of annual giving.

The president may name up to two directors-at-large to fulfill any role defined, for any time period, but limited to her term in office. The executive director of the Alumnae Association, the editor of Wellesley magazine, and alumnae trustees are ex officio members of the board with privileges of the floor, but without vote.

The terms of the appointment are two consecutive 2-year cycles.
