This past September in Seattle, the local chapter hosted a happy hour to gather the alums together and welcome the new class of Consortium graduates. The new class of alumni did not hesitate to introduce themselves to tenured alumni, and it was truly inspiring to welcome their fresh talent and motivation. While Seattle is a younger alumni contingent, this event reinforced the passion the chapter has to strengthen the Consortium legacy post-graduation.
Consortium Alumni Affairs generously sponsored the event, which not only connected alumni with one another, but also triggered ideas for events in 2018! Speaking of, see below for those event ideas.
- Consortium Dinner/Fundraising Event – just like Consortium has supported us, we can do the same
- “Night Shift” – a Seattle event where local DJs perform, and alums join in and bust a move
- Community Service event
- Boat Gathering on Lake Union or Washington – great for during the beautiful summertime!
The Seattle Consortium Chapter sincerely thanks Consortium Alumni Affairs and Adrienne Thomas for helping create this memorable occasion, and looks forward to what 2018 has in store!
“Being connected to CGSM post-graduation has been such a blessing as I embark on my new career at Starbucks in a new city. I really appreciated being welcomed to the Seattle chapter and meeting new Consortees from various years and companies. The number of members we have as well as the energy to initiate events to connect and give back is so exciting! Thank you, Jessica and Marco for organizing, and CGSM, for supporting ongoing development of our community beyond the MBA program.”
