The RAA Board of Trustees consists of approximately 30 caring and involved student and alumni members who represent alumni interests to the Institute. Other than some designated positions, the trustees-at-large are elected by fellow alumni.

The RAA board works closely with the Office of Alumni Relations in developing and implementing programs that are of interest and value to RPI alumni, including networking, social, educational, and student-centered activities.

The Board meets in Troy three times per year and convenes by teleconference or e-mail between meetings.
