Carolina Clubs Go All Out to Connect Alumni

More than 100 Carolina Clubs worldwide help alumni stay connected to each other and help them give back to Carolina and their communities. Each year, the GAA honors outstanding clubs — those that are considered exceptional in serving their area alumni, the GAA and the University. A committee considers several elements to select award winners, including service to UNC, community involvement, financial management, leadership, organization, event planning and communications. These clubs were recognized in November at the GAA-sponsored club leaders’ conference.
