Chapters and Ambassadors:

You are never far away from CalArts! Chapters connect and engage our community around the world. Whether you're local, temporary resident, or visiting the region, alumnx in specific geographic regions meet, enjoy events together, and collaborate. 

Alumnx who run chapters are called leaders, and each chapter has two leaders who co-chair the group. For those wishing to represent but whose lifestyle/career precludes them from committing to a Chapter, they can be Ambassadors!

If you would like to volunteer, start a new chapter, become an Ambassador, or join the rockstar ranks of an existing chapter, let us know!
