Black Alumni Association

Chicago Booth Alumni Special Interest Group

Chicago Booth Black Alumni Association (CBAA)

The Chicago Booth Black Alumni Association (CBAA) began as a steering committee in April of 2004. This group quickly formed into a larger, more structured affinity organization with a vision of building a connected community (among Black Booth Alumni) that uses its knowledge, skills, relationships, and talents to maximize individual and collective success. 

Congratulations to the new leadership of CBAA!

Chicago Booth Alumni Relations would like to thank Brigitte Anderson, ’08, and Alandrea Timmons, ’08, for their efforts to organize the Black alumni community. Since 2017, they have given countless volunteer hours to meetings, emails, town halls, planning the annual brunch, networking at social events, developing virtual programming, and providing input and feedback to us as our partners. We are grateful they will continue as advisors throughout the leadership transition and remain Chicago Booth ambassadors.
