Board Members

As the lead staff person for the Alumni & Friends Association, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the individuals who volunteer many hours of their free time to help make the A&FA the valuable resource that it is. Their efforts as volunteers are what make many of our programs and events possible. Thank you for all that you do for CSU Channel Islands, its students and alumni.
