Fall Alumni Newsletter now available
The fall 2014 Alumni Newsletter is now available. Download your copy here.
We try to keep up with current ways to stay in touch with CIM alumni. For many CIM graduates we have a mailing address, an email address, a phone number, and even a website. For some, we only have an email address. For others, we have only a mailing address. For some we have no contact information at all.
That's why we're trying something new this fall. We're sending this fall's Alumni Newsletter by mail and email and also posting it on both the alumni web page and the alumni Facebook page in the hope of reaching more alumni than ever before.
We apologize in advance if you get this newsletter in more than one format. But we hope you'll enjoy reading it and finding information that is valuable to you.
If you know CIM alumni who didn't receive this newsletter, please share it with them, and forward their contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Char Rapoport Nance, CIM Development Officer, Alumni and Parent Relations, email@example.com, 216.795.3169. Thank you!
Alumni Association Benefit - it's a big hit!
The Beat Goes On, the March 9 concert to benefit the CIM Alumni Association, was a big hit, with more than a hundred music lovers enjoying both the talents of our alumni performers and the delicious dessert reception catered by event sponsor Great Lakes Brewing Company.

Performers included Jinjoo Cho, Daniel Lim, Hyun Soo Kim, Mell Csicsila, Bruce Golden, Michael Jarrett, Matt Larson and Dylan Moffitt, who also coordinated the talent for the concert. Lisa Boyko was the event chair.
