 THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

 

Maria UbagoHappy New Year!  On behalf of the CSULA Alumni Association Board of Directors and the staff, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your membership and support.  Without your support, we would not be able to provide the networking events, lectures, and programs that are annually available to you.  We wouldn't be able to offer career services and mentoring sessions to graduating students and alumni in transition.  Members like you make it all possible!

I also want to inform you that the University and the Association have planned many exciting events and programs this year.  Whether you are interested in professional networking events, mentoring programs, athletic events or the arts, there is something happening almost every month.  Therefore, I encourage you to read this newsletter to learn of all the great programs and opportunities. 

Again, thank you for your support and membership.  The CSULA Alumni Association staff and I look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming events!

Sincerely,

Maria Ubago '98, '06
