Mission Statement

The Associate Board is a group of service-minded young professionals dedicated to supporting and contributing to CASL through:

  • Service – serving CASL constituents and the greater Chicago community through volunteer service
  • Fundraising and Awareness – raising funds and heightening CASL’s profile in the community
  • Community – nurturing a community of young professionals joined by common interest in civic engagement
  • Civic Leadership Development – cultivating civic leadership skills for individuals to contribute to CASL’s mission and the greater Chicago community


The Associate Board’s general membership is composed of professionals in their 20’s and 30’s with an emphasis on community engagement. Our past service events include tours of top ranked universities in the Chicago area, essay scholarship contests, and career panels benefiting students that are the first in their family to attend college. We host frequent social and membership appreciation events in the various bars and restaurants Chicago has to offer.
