Alumnae/i across the country and abroad help identify opportunities to engage CA alumnae/i with each other – and the school – in their area. Locally, volunteers can also help plan on and off campus activities attracting alumnae/i in the Boston area.

 

How You Can Help:

  • Identify performances and sporting events in your city that would be suitable for a group sponsored by the Advancement and Engagement Office to attend – as well as nearby venues for a pre- or post-gathering;
  • Keep an eye out for interesting venues for receptions;
  • Reach out to other alums in your area and encouraging them to attend;
  • Participate in a few conference calls each year with alumnae/i from other cities to brainstorm and share ideas;
  • Work with the Engagement team to replicate or modify programs that have been successful in other areas (e.g., the alumnae/i book group in Washington DC).
