In July 2018, the Cal Alumni Association (CAA) welcomed four new members and a student director to its Board of Directors. The CAA Board of Directors oversees the vision of the organization; encourages diversity, strategic leadership, and decisions; and serves and connects with the entire Cal alumni community.

Each new board members will serve a four-year term from July 2018 to July 2022; our student director will serve through June 2019. We asked all five incoming members to share what they most anticipate accomplishing during their tenure with CAA. Each one of them hopes to foster better connections and relationships throughout the entire Berkeley community.
