CLC Membership

Thank you!

Alumni donations exceeded the Membership campaign goal when our fiscal year ended June 30! Thank you to all those who contributed, and who asked their classmates to join them as CLC Members. 

Your generosity enables CLC to better serve its mission and work with you to have even more impact on the community. We look forward to seeing you at Member-only events and elsewhere around the community.

Alumni who have not yet renewed or joined are welcome to do so at any time using the form below, or calling Michael Bennett at (216) 408-3874.
