Happy New Year from ICAA!

We hope this year bring you health, happiness and in person meetings!


Exciting Opportunity for ICAA Members From Our Friends at Alumni FM!

From now to the end of January, Alumni FM is offering free 30-minute podcast consultations to help schools evaluate how much value a podcast can add and whether it makes sense to invest in one. For those actively looking to produce a podcast, we can provide guidance on how to integrate it with existing strategic and marketing initiatives. Our mission is to connect people with stories, and we'd love to help you do that with a podcast for your alumni and broader community. 

Reach out to Robert Li,, to schedule a time to chat!
