The Board meets once a month throughout the school year. Committees of the Alumni Board are the Service/Student Engagement Committee, Social/Alumni Engagement Committee Finance Committee, Cranbrook Initiatives, Kingswood Initiatives, and the Merchandise Committee. We sponsor a career fair for juniors and seniors on campus every year, and host in-person and remote career panels for classes and student clubs.
