Dallas Young Alumni Planning Board Volunteers

The Dallas Young Alumni Planning Board was established as an affinity group in 2017. It was formed to connect young graduates in the DFW area (0-20 years out) through cultural, social, and networking events.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Attend Events: Dallas Young Alumni Planning Board hosts one to two events per month. Events include happy hours, game watching parties, volunteer opportunities, and professional sports outings. All events are publicized via the DYA calendar, Facebook, and through e-mail. To ensure that you are included on the DYA distribution list, email us with your updating mailing address at
  • Serve on the DYA Planning Board: Members of DYAPB work with members of the SMU Alumni Office staff to spread the word out about DYA events. Volunteers also attend these activities as representatives of this Affinity Group and help other alumni become involved with DYA. There is a one year term commitment with the option to renew for a total of two years.
  • Support SMU: A gift to SMU shows your vote of confidence in the University. Make your gift today by visiting

Time Commitment:

Host Committee members should plan to spend 1-3 hours per month inviting area Mustangs to attend events and serving as representatives at DYA functions. DYA Planning Board volunteers can expect to spend 1-5 hours per month on planning and implementing DYA activities. Upon selection, members of DYAPB agree to serve for one calendar year with the option to renew the following year. No member can serve for longer than two years.
