Berkeley Haas has three primary alumni volunteer boards as well as several research center boards.


Berkeley Haas Alumni Council

The Berkeley Haas Council is comprised of alumni and student volunteers who serve as ambassadors by communicating with classmates (or fellow alumni at their corporation) about year-round activities, engagement opportunities, reunion events, lifelong learning programs, career services, and annual giving to the school. These volunteers also guide the planning and priorities of the Berkeley Haas Alumni Network (BHAN). The council meets formally three times a year (2 video calls, 1 all-day conference) to network, hear key school updates, learn from current faculty, and share ideas.
