CGL Alumni Network
The Create Great Leaders Alumni Network is a great way to engage with fellow alumni, support current programs and scholarships, and stay current with the happenings of the Chamber’s Leadership Programs.
About the Network
For over 30 years, the Grand Rapids Chamber has led the region in talent development and leadership programs. All program participants are part of the network, creating a network of over 2,500 community leaders.
At the heart of our programs is connection. Whether participants are taking a community-focused program or a program to improve their public speaking skills, we are intentional in connecting all participants to one another. We believe magic happens through these connections.
Benefits of Joining
The network exists to provide continued social connection, learning and growth through service, and opportunities for systems impact for graduates of leadership programs.
The CGL newsletter keeps you informed about programs, upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and the happenings of CGL alumni. Keep your information updated to stay connected (opens in new window). Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to create an account.
