CLU Establishes First Online Chapter of Net Impact, Hosts First Meeting with Carole Neal
Net Impact - Online Chapter at CLU
Claremont Lincoln University established the first ever online chapter of Net Impact
and had its first online meeting on August 5th
Historically an on-the-ground initiative, Net Impact
is a wide, global community of students and professionals making a positive social impact in the world. With over 300 chapters, its wide network is a chance for change-agents to connect with other change-agents and leaders.
As Net Impact chapters are usually hosted on physical campuses, Claremont Lincoln University’s own Net Impact chapter is significant due to it being the first chapter to be completely online. CLU’s Net Impact chapter is exclusive to CLU students. In its first exclusive online meeting, CLU’s Net Impact chapter welcomed Carole Neal, a Senior Marketing Professional with experience in professional branding and marketing in companies like Verizon and various non-profits.
As the featured speaker for the first chapter meeting, Neal spoke on the importance of branding yourself or your organization. During the session, Neal had stated, “Branding can help increase revenues or fundraising, improve customer experience, and attract additional clients, donors, or supporters.”
Heather Case Pryor, Director of Student Services and one of the founders for CLU’s online Net Impact chapter, speaks on why CLU sought to establish its own online chapter of Net Impact:
“We want our students to connect with each other and expand their network to include key individuals and experts like Carole in an online platform. That way, students build a network with greater reach, which lasts beyond their time as a student.”
