Your Board of Directors

The CCAA Board of Directors is the leadership group of the Alumni Association. It is made up of alumni volunteers who are committed to the success of the CCAA. The leadership provided by the board is integral to the successful implementation of its strategic plan, designed to accomplish the mission, vision and purpose of the Alumni Association.

The board meets four times a year to establish policy, develop goals and objectives, and direct the Office of Alumni Relations in long-range planning. The board consists of an executive committee, directors and ex-officio members.
