OCMBA has 5 or 6 events each year at great venues in Orange County. Some of our events are purely social, while others combine networking time with a presentation on a topic of relevance to business professionals. Each event is organized by 2-3 of our member B-School alumni clubs, who select the venue and format.   Most OCMBA events have a small fee to attend – just enough to cover the expenses to put on the event. We typically have between 80 and 130 people attending our events, from a wide range of industries.

Notifications for upcoming OCMBA events should appear in the emails you receive from your B-School’s alumni club. You can also receive notifications directly from OCMBA about our events and find out about events from other B-school clubs that are open to all OCMBA alums by joining the OCMBA LinkedIn Group (Note: you must be an alum of one of the 15 OCMBA B-Schools in order to join the OCMBA LinkedIn Group.  Be sure to allow notifications about events in your Settings).

After attending an OCMBA event, OCMBA alums will also be notified about our upcoming events directly from OCMBA – we maintain our own list but only use it for communicating about OCMBA’s events.  We never rent, share or give out information to any other groups and you can unsubscribe from this list at any time if you do not wish to receive emails from OCMBA.
