ABA Information Session
Thursday, September 10
5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Burkle (Room To Be Determined)
All CGU students are invited!

Please note: This is a meeting aimed at people who are interested in an ABA leadership role—a general member info session will be held later this month.

If you were not able to join in the Student Club Fair last week, then here are the basics:

About the ABA:

The Asian Business Association (ABA) was founded in 1976 as a business forum and networking organization that fosters new ideas and provides a venue to discuss issues that affect business interests. The ABA works toward bringing divergent groups together on all business related topics.

Several Drucker alumni are ABA members including Dennis Huang and Jennifer Lin who have each expressed interest in partnering with the Drucker School to enable students to get involved in local business relationship building.

Partnership with CGU students as members:

Students may or may not have had the opportunity to conduct real, value-added analysis to reinforce their classroom learning. This is a great opportunity for students to get involved in local businesses and in networking opportunities, and to add experience to resumes! There are workshops and other events offered throughout the year for a greatly discounted yearly rate of only $20 a year (normal cost is $100). If more than 31 students become ABA members, the organization will donate 120 percent of student member funds back to the student members for networking events and workshops!

Leadership positions available:

DSSA is currently looking for four motivated and driven students to develop and manage a relationship with the ABA and the student member project, including planning exciting events and managing member dues and communication.

Benefits to joining the leadership team:

1. Add experience to your resume.
2. Develop networking opportunities.
3. Develop community and business connections while in school.
4. Be the first to know about exciting resume-building consulting projects.
5. Develop project management, leadership, team-building and communication skills.
6. Get more involved in Drucker!
