CEU Alumni Leadership Forum 2018

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give” - Winston Churchill 

Are you passionate about volunteering? Would you like to remain active in the life of your alma mater? Then Alumni Leadership Forum is for you. Come join your fellow alumni who have been giving back their time and talent to the CEU community – by leading alumni chapters, helping recruit the best talent, or advance career development of CEU students and graduates.

The Alumni Leadership Forum is two full days of events bringing together alumni volunteers from diverse countries. It is also a platform for CEU to hear from its most engaged alumni, learn about opportunities and challenges within their communities, get alumni feedback, provide training and recognize volunteers’ hard work. At the same time, volunteers get to meet and learn from peers, hear updates from CEU, meet CEU leadership, staff and students and share their ideas for strengthening our community.

Whether you're an experienced volunteer or just getting started, all alumni are welcome. See sessions below and let us know which you'd like to attend, via the registration form
