Crummer Welcomes Six New Members to the Crummer Alumni Board

New Alumni Board members bring diverse perspectives to help build a better Crummer Alumni Association.

The Crummer Alumni Board works to create a lifelong connection between the Crummer School and its alumni.  It supports Crummer by providing meaningful opportunities, events, and programs beneficial to alumni. Comprised of a group of 21 volunteers, the board strives to be representative of the entire Crummer alumni population.

This new class of members is comprised of executives, leaders, and entrepreneurs who hail from six different industries – nonprofit, marketing, hospitality, finance, healthcare, and training. They span three decades at Crummer, representing the EDBA, EMBA, PMBA, and EAMBA programs. They each have their own Crummer stories with different favorite faculty, courses, and memories, but all have felt the impact that Crummer has had on their professional and personal lives. And all want to give back and bolster Crummer through the power of alumni engagement.

“One of the greatest benefits of the Crummer School is the alumni network, and the Crummer Alumni Board is vital to keeping that network strong. We are thrilled to welcome such a dynamic group of volunteers who each bring a diverse perspective to the Board and the Alumni Association. They have already hit the ground running, and I’m excited to see what they can accomplish.” – Mike Brown, Director of Alumni Relations.
