Central Valley Network

The Network is organized for the following purposes: To provide programs of service and support to the University of California, Davis and its alumni. To provide a vehicle to enable alumni, students, parents of current students, and friends of the University of California, Davis to interact with one another on a professional and social basis. To support the Principles of Community and the CAAA Board of Directors bylaws. To build community among alumni, students, parents of current students, and friends of the UC Davis campus based around a demonstrated affinity. The demonstrated affinity the Network is organized around is the geographic region of the Central Valley of California, which includes the San Joaquin Valley from Lodi to Bakersfield and leaders representing in some of the biggest metropolitan areas. UCD is ranked #1 in agriculture and this area boasts strong agricultural communities. The Central Valley Network connects UC Davis alumni, friends and families in and around the Central Valley (from San Joaquin down to Kern County). To get involved, attend an upcoming event or contact a network leader. 

We're always looking to expand our networks. If you're interested in volunteering for our Central Valley Networks, please email network liaison Ashley Pelham
