As the COVID-19 situation continues to rapidly change, I want to assure you that the health and safety of all members of the CU Boulder community is the university's top priority. With that in mind, the CU Boulder Alumni Association is canceling or postponing our upcoming events now through at least May 28.
This includes all student, donor, alumni and regional chapter/club events run by or in conjunction with the Alumni Association and Advancement. A list of canceled/postponed events is below.
Those who have already registered for canceled events will be refunded, if applicable. If an event is postponed, registration and tickets will be honored for the new date. In the case of CU Boulder Next in Chicago, refunds will be given despite the event being postponed. No action from you is needed.
We will continue to evaluate the situation to determine if events planned after May 28 will be impacted.

Finally, while events will be canceled and/or postponed for the time being, the Alumni Association will continue to work toward fulfilling our purpose — connecting Forever Buffs. One way we'll do that is by keeping our online communities active. Join the conversation on:
If you have questions about events or other alumni programs, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, please know that we are thinking about our entire Forever Buffs community. We’ll remember this moment for the rest of our lives and tell future generations how our campus responded and was resilient.
Take care of yourselves, and take care of each other.
