Chapman50 Alumni Leadership Summit
Target Launch date: 2014
The group’s annual flagship event will bring together prominent academic and industry leaders. The Summit will initiate an academic and professional thought conference, creating a dialogue between nationally renowned guest speakers and Chapman50 members. Alumni internationally, notable faculty, industry innovators, and members’ families will be invited to the group’s largest event of the year. Given the scope and size of this event, it will be fee-based.
Members will have ongoing opportunities to dialogue among each other and Chapman’s esteemed university leaders to provide not only Chapman50 program updates, but also gain individualized professional and personal guidance. The Roundtable gives members a casual environment to acquire the professional knowledge they need to be effective leaders.
Four industry-specific alumni gatherings will be hosted at exclusive company locations. Each event will feature a notable guest speaker who will share timely topics and challenges facing their profession or industry. Members will gain inside access to various high profile companies and associated business affiliates. These events are designed for members to learn the inner-workings of a wide range of industries.
Alumni Speaker Panel
The panel will showcase accomplished alumni speakers who will cover topics that members have determined as timely and press-worthy for their businesses. Through a Q&A format, alumni panelists and guest speakers from leading companies or in-demand careers will provide practical professional guidance to students, alumni, and the public.
Student and Young Alumni Mentorship Lunches
Members will host intimate gatherings to encourage the academic, social, and professional development of select young alumni from CUYA and Chapman50 student Scholars. To continue these mutually beneficial relationships, member mentors may be matched with graduating seniors or young alumni with similar professional and life goals.
All Chapman50 social events are open to members’ families and company connections to foster an inclusive family and professional network. Additionally, members will be included in select Board of Trustees and Governors social gatherings.
