Events At-a-Glance

The entire board convened this month to start planning for the remainder of the year. Tons of excitement around a very full calendar of activities this fall and we also welcomed our newest member, Susan McDonough, CC '90, to the board as the Director of Arts and Culture. Currently, we have two open roles on the board Director of Entrepreneurship and Director of Partnerships and Fundraising please take a look and consider joining us!

In addition, the Columbia Asian Alumni Association of NorCal is looking for Board of Directors. Any Alumni who are interested, please email [email protected].
