|Founded in 1993, CalNEO is made up
of alumni of the University of California at Berkeley who are located in
the NorthEast OHIO, in the area of Cleveland and its surrounding communities.
For nearly twenty years we gathered annually for each year's Big Game,
during the summer for a traditional wine tasting and crochet party, and
at other times for special occasions.
The Board of CalNEO was instrumental in working with CAA to implement
alumni services and support for more than ten years, with the philosophy
that Alumni House is there to serve the MEMBERSHIP, and not the other way
around. As the result of this work, the alumni nationwide received
the annual telecast of the BigGame, Alumni Scholarships were awarded in
states outside California, and alumni have at least some little control
to stop unwanted mailings and solicitations.
With changes in technology, internet social media, and now open telecast
of nearly all college sports activities, our need to come together to maintain
alumni contacts and share activities has been sharply reduced.
We are all California Golden Bears and to the best of our knowledge
we are the largest body of alumni from any single organization in the world.
Together, we can change the world, if we choose.
As an alumni organization of the University of California, we opposed
the change in leadership and control of CAA taken in June 2005 by the former
executive director and his friends. With the time now passed, this
opposition is moot. For further information on this, please refer
to information provided in link online.
CalNEO is open to all alumni, employees, associates and friends of the
University of California. We will even welcome Stanford friends and
associates to join us as they wish to celebrate our common backgrounds.
