Parents Council

The Parents Council was established to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and information between parents, cadets and Institute officials; create an organization to formulate and administer plans and projects; bring the parents of cadets into closer association with VMI; aid in the growth and development of the VMI Foundation; and to assist the Institute in providing for the welfare and development of cadets. Members of the Council are selected from parents of cadets in the upper three classes.

The Parents Council is overseen by the President and the Vice President-Elect. There are four main committees in the Council: Activities, Communications, Society of Friends and Family and Recruiting.
