The Council established an Alumni Association to enable all Fellows who complete the program to participate in Council programs around the country, receive Council publications, and mentor subsequent classes of Fellows.
Every five years, the Council hosts an alumni leadership conference to follow up with the Fellows to determine the impact of the program on their academic and professional careers. The most recent alumni meeting was held in April 2021 and resulted in the election of new officers and the development of regional alumni activities. Officers serve one-year terms.
Following are the biographies of the CAA Fellowship Alumni Association Officers.
