We're back from our summer break with a slightly redesigned newsletter and more content we hope you'll enjoy.  

We began our first full year on July 1, 2017 and will celebrate our birthday during Homecoming Week! We're excited about the future and hope you'll continue to support us and encourage B-School alumni to join SBANA as we build upon the rich history and legacy of the CAU B-School!

In this Month's issue:


A key part of our mission is to support career development among B-School alumni to qualified undergraduate and MBA students. This summer we delivered on our mission and launched Career Connections, a career page on our website with several opportunities for B-School Alumni and students!

We're looking for B-School alumni with accounting/finance and legal experience to join our Board and fill our open Treasurer and Parliamentarian positions. Nominate someone or yourself by sending us an email.

We'd like to welcome our newest Board member, Ms. Margaret Sherel's (CAU '06)!  She officially began her two year term as Secretary on August 2.
We also welcomed back two founding members. Ms. Shiekgo Carter (CAU '94) and Mr. Kevin Y. Brown (CAU '07) who will serve as Members-at-Large.

Special shout out to our Board Member, Kevin Y. Brown who was featured in Black Enterprise last month. Read his feature here.
