The Alumni Association President, Eduardo Arabu, Class of 2010, welcomed and thanked the members who were able to attend, "Thank you for joining us and we look forward to sharing our plans and goals, as well as hearing any suggestions you may have for us." During the Luncheon, Membership Director, Lucinda Borque, Class of 2016, discussed the goals, short and long, which will help progress the Association and benefit its members.

Treasurer, Daniel Rosario, Class of 2013, went over fundraising strategies that will help raise funds to continue to support and further develop the Alumni Association. Providing programs and services that will support current Global Leaders and promote its members' professional growth, is just one of the many goals the Association plans to contribute. President Arabu and Vice-President, Eliza Ramirez, Class of 2012, then listened to individual members feedback and ideas on how to cultivate and engage the national CHLI Alumni.

Today, the Alumni Association is comprised of over 155 former interns, from all over the U.S., with distinct careers spanning from public, private and non-profit sectors. CHLI congratulates its Alumni Association for their success and looks forward to the many more achievements to come.
