Meet the 2018-19 UC Alumni UK Board

On Thursday 11 October, the UC Alumni UK Networks will kick-off the academic year at a secret private bar at a buzzing East London venue.  

Earlier this month, the UC Alumni UK Board leaders gathered for the first meeting of the 2018-2019 academic year. The Board includes UK network presidents from UC Berkeley, Berkeley-Haas, Davis, Los Angeles, UCLA Anderson, Riverside, San Diego and Santa Barbara.
