We hope everyone had a blast at the CUE Alumni Kickoff Party last Wednesday night at the home of our gracious host - Simon Kinberg (SoA '03). Over 200 alumni, current students, faculty and friends were in
attendance and made the party a great success. With support from the School of the Arts, the party was held in
conjunction with the SoA Film Division's 2007 Los Angeles Film Screenings.
Thank you all for
coming out to the event! It's essential to keep in touch with Columbia folks in Los Angeles and continue to meet new ones, so stay tuned - there will be more events to come.
The Preliminary Board met this week and is continuing to discuss the specifics of how to grow our group and build a sustainable and successful Alumni Network which will be of maximum benefit to alumni in the entertainment industry. We are expecting to announce a group-wide organizational meeting soon. In the mean time, please go to our new website:
www.cue-network.org to keep informed with what is going on and what is coming up. Also, please contact us with any ideas or comments you may have and let us know if you might like to get more involved in the CUE Network.
The most important way you can help now is to spread the word - please ask anyone you know who went to Columbia University and is working in the entertainment industry to go to our website and sign on to our email list. We are looking to widen our reach to Columbia folks in all areas of the entertainment industry - be they graduates from the School of the Arts, the Business School, Law School, Journalism School, Columbia College, School of General Studies or Barnard.
Again, thanks so much for coming out to our Kickoff Party and making it such a great event - we can't wait to see you all at a CUE event in the near future.
