We are delighted to announce a momentous step for the US Alumni Club - we have officially become a Community Interest Company (CIC). As a CIC, we hope to have a distinct and valuable role to play in helping our club members thrive professionally and socially in the United Kingdom.
We began in 2005 as a loose affiliation of US university alumni club leaders and have transformed over the years into a thriving community of over 900 alumni. Our shared experiences and common ground continue to strengthen the network as our community grows and prospers abroad.
The strength of our alumni network and support from our corporate sponsors have created a need to professionalise the Club so that we can guarantee that our mission to serve our international alumni community is met. We are confident that as a community interest company we will be able to leverage the talents of our strong leadership board and our alumni network to do more for our members.
A community interest company is a business with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested in the community in which it serves. As a business serving our community, we aim to expand our social and professional events and connect with more U.S. university affiliates so that our network remains strong and inclusive. As a CIC, we hope to become the premier organisation in the UK for U.S. alumni to share experiences.
The US Alumni Club is managed by Alexa Fernandez (Director, Executive Board), Ashwin Tirodkar (Director, Executive Board), and Corinne Goldberg (Company Secretary, Executive Board). We are also supported by Saroja Naidu who manages our web content.
We would like to thank our members and our corporate sponsors for your enthusiasm and support over the years and we look forward to many more shared memories. Let’s celebrate!
