After Fellows complete their BCLI training, they remain deeply involved through the BCLI Alumni Network. The Alumni Network is highly engaged in recruiting and training new cohorts, and in supporting each other’s political impact and professional development. BCLI alumni commit to:
Strengthening Incoming BCLI Cohorts
BCLI alumni actively recruit, nominate, and co-host information sessions for prospective applicants. They interview and select candidates, and mentor and champion BCLI Fellows as they apply for board and commission seats. During the Fellowship, alumni help shape and deliver curriculum: they facilitate knowledge and skill-building sessions, join Current Issues Panels, and share best practices on Commissioner Roundtables.
Sustaining Alumni Engagement
The BCLI Alumni Association Board shapes alumni programming, strengthens alumni communications and networking, and leads the BCLI Alumni Award process.
Continued Professional and Political Development
Alumni participate in quarterly social and networking events, professional development and knowledge-sharing, and political strategizing sessions.
