The Parent Association represents parents of full time students in the graduate, and the undergraduate programs and has a voice in shared governance in the University. The Association's Bylaws are online, UNM Parent Association, for eligibility requirements, board officer position descriptions and standard committee descriptions.

The newly elected officers will serve a two-year term beginning June 1, 2012. Additionally, several standing committee chair positions will become available due to term limits.
