MY CCAA

LETTER FROM OUR CHAIR Jonathan L. Dudley ’10 | ccaaprez@ccis.edu

Hello fellow alumni! I hope this note find you and your families doing well and staying healthy. The CCAA Advisory Committee held its winter board meeting a few weeks ago, where we had the chance to meet Interim President Dr. Russell. We greatly appreciate him being on the call and providing his vision for the college during this time of transition. There are several initiatives for you to get involved with this spring — from virtual gatherings to career workshops and my favorite event of the year, Giving Day on March 23. I get so excited for this event because it unifies all groups across the college. All donations go to support the Columbia College Fund. Will you join the CCAA board by making a gift too? Learn more at my.ccis.edu/givingday. We will also be celebrating our most recent CCAA Alumni Award winners on June 24, who we introduced you to in the Fall 2020 magazine. This event offers a small glimpse at the amazing alumni who chose Columbia College to help them reach their career and personal goals. Keep an eye out for emails this spring about how you can be part of the event.

Spring 2021

As my term as president comes to a close this June, I will pass the reigns to Debra Carnahan ’82. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Debra. She brings a wealth of knowledge and energy to the board and is always the first to volunteer. I can’t wait to see what initiatives she brings to the table. We Are CC!
