Board of Advocates

CLAgency’s Board of Advocates (BOA) provides mentorship, credibility, and inspiration for our team. Through our partnerships with successful professionals, our content creators build relationships with liberal arts alumni and friends who have navigated the business world and have worked with public relations and marketing in a variety of positions. Our BOA members offer unique experiences and expertise to help us learn about different facets of the communications field.

We meet with our BOA three times a year to discuss work we have done, to brainstorm areas where we can improve, and to give content creators the chance to ask questions and network.
