This episode is a little different. In honor of a marquee event that the CAA has coming up in October, we decided to gather some thoughts from prominent Columbia alumni about leadership. What it means to them, what makes a good leader, and how Columbia has contributed to ability to lead. These are some of the many questions that alumni will consider when they attend the annual Columbia Leaders Weekend on October 7-9.
The weekend is a time for Columbia’s top alumni volunteers and leaders to convene and brainstorm exciting forms of alumni engagement and new ways of developing the next generation of volunteer leaders. Jam-packed with panel discussions and breakout sessions, it is the ultimate opportunity to meet and interact with Columbians from across the University and around the globe.
One of the highlights of the weekend is the CAA Alumni Medalists Gala, where select alumni are recognized for distinguished service of 10 years or more to the University. Though the Medals are formally awarded at Columbia’s commencement, their contribution is also recognized at the gala. The Medal was first awarded in 1933 and is the highest honor bestowed to alumni by the University.
