The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Board of Trustees has appointed 40 alumni and friends to serve on the UNC Board of Visitors, one of the most active volunteer groups at Carolina. They began their four-year terms July 1.

 
The new members are part of an approximately 175-member board that actively assists the Board of Trustees and Chancellor in a range of activities advancing the UNC, including career services, marketing, honor student recruitment, public and government relations and fundraising. Members also serve as ambassadors, informing their communities about issues important to Carolina, and, in turn, keeping the UNC administration informed about what they hear about Carolina in their communities.

 

The Board of Visitors selection process begins in January and continues through May. Each year, as members rotate off, the Board of Trustees elects a class of new members. Richard W. Margerison of Dallas was selected to chair the Board of Visitors and N. Thompson Long of Fox Point, Wis., will serve as vice chair.
