Club Leader Resources

Become a Columbia Business School alumni club leader and join an elite group of volunteers. Club leaders serve as the primary liaisons between Columbia Business School and the alumni population in their region. They are responsible for organizing networking and learning opportunities that reflect the mission of the School.

Alumni Relations is dedicated to working with club leaders to provide them with resources to help connect their community to the Columbia Business School global alumni network. 

Club leaders are encouraged to work closely with the Alumni Clubs team to develop and implement governance procedures, including on-boarding and off-boarding for new volunteers, elections guidelines, succession planning, and board responsibilities.

Interested in getting involved?

Each Columbia Business School alumni club has an appointed club leader or set of co-club leaders who oversee a leadership team. If you are interested in getting involved in an existing club, please visit our domesticinternational, and affinity club webpages for club leader contact information.
