Action Teams

Community Outreach TeamPlease consider volunteering and contributing your unique skills to the College of Business Alumni Association. We've created a fun team of motivated, self-starters to organize events, programs, community involvement and communications. An organization of this caliber takes the dedication of select volunteers. Benefits for all of these positions include developing invaluable project management and leadership experience, working with a professional team and networking. If you are interested in serving with one of our teams, please contact Lisa Gilman through the contact tab on the left.

Networking

Business graduates need to connect with people in order to advance their careers, and this team organizes events that will be beneficial and fun. This team also guides the communication and web site of the association.

Community Outreach

More than 60% of our 8,000 graduates live along the Front Range, creating the potential for a powerful advocate for business in the Pikes Peak region. This team is focused on connecting community business leaders with the College of Business, through major events and involvement in community initiatives. Read about a past project: Operation 6035.

Mentoring

One of the key goals of the College of Business Alumni Association is to help students build their career success. The mentoring team coordinates an annual Speed Mentoring event during which students and alumni meet with several experienced business people, for exploration of career choices and guidance in the transition from student to business professional. The team also connects alumni and community members with students and faculty through the Executives in the Classroom program.

Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award Planning

Help us plan the major event in Colorado Springs that celebrates the legacy of entrepreneurship in our community. Each spring the College honors one individual who has made a significant impact on the Pikes Peak region through entrepreneurship and community involvement. This event is the biggest fundraiser for the College and supports scholarships, programs and events for students, alumni and community members.

Communications

We have opportunities for volunteers to communicate our activities and news, contribute to our monthly e-newsletter, work on publicity and event invitations, and boost our web presence through Facebook and LinkedIn.

We are in the business of building successful futures. ™
