C3 Conference Divisions

Our alumni chapters range in size from 2,700 members to fewer than 30. Some chapters serve single cities, while others cover several states. Thus, it is impossible to establish a one-size-fits-all model for success. Instead, we created the Chapter Colonnade Challenge, or C3, to provide a flexible guide of what we expect of our chapters through measured criteria, as well as a fun and collegial competition to measure and reward their success. The C3 serves as the foundation for chapter health. In the C3, chapters are divided into five active divisions based on alumni population. 

*Note that this information is for the 2018-2019 planning year. Starting July 1, there will be a new chapter division structure and requirements. Call the Alumni Engagement Office with any questions at (540) 458-8464.
