Northern California Volunteer Leaders

Volunteer Leaders are enthusiastic, involved alumni focused on galvanizing alumni spirit and participation within their regional network. In addition to being the regional network's social media ambassador, Volunteer Leaders serve as the primary contact for area alumni and as the point person for local events and philanthropic activities.
