Let’s make a difference together—today

Spring is the perfect time to spring into action—and what better way to become involved and jumpstart your personal and professional growth than by joining the CSULA Alumni Association.

With more than 10,000 members—and counting—the Association is one of the largest dues-paying organizations in the CSU system. Our members represent a wide-range of professional fields, careers and interests, and are key leaders throughout their communities and on this campus.

As an organization of our size and stature, we have a unique opportunity to effect change in our students’ and members’ lives, and we have actively sought out even better ways to do this through our new Alumni Mentoring Program, ongoing Financial Fitness forums and other networking events.

In order to maintain this level of success we need your help. Through your membership you demonstrate your commitment to Cal State L.A. and its role as a beacon of possibility in the community. Say “yes” to the Association, and say “yes” to maintaining and growing your intellectual, professional and emotional bonds to CSULA.

If you are not already a member of the Association, please join online at alumni.calstatela.edu. We may also be reached at (323) 343-ALUM (2586) and via e-mail at alum@cslanet.calstatela.edu.

Leadership and Networking 101

Learn how to get involved at summer forum

CSULA Alumni Association volunteers.

Since its inception in 1955, the Cal State L.A. Alumni Association has been a recognized leader within the CSU system, receiving numerous awards for the design and execution of innovative member services, benefits and programs. Much of that success can be credited to our volunteers and members who are a driving force in the organization, having dedicated time to advancing the welfare of the University through leadership and service.

The Association will host the Alumni Leadership Recruitment Forum this summer. The forum will feature a panel of volunteers who will speak to value of being involved with the Association at the Committee, Board of Directors and Alumni Networks level. Our volunteers list many benefits of service, including professional enhancement, personal growth, and the opportunity to explore new professional paths and give back.

For more information, contact the Association at (323) 343-ALUM (2586) or email Randi Moore, Executive Director, Alumni Relations RMoore@cslanet.calstatela.edu.
