Chris Carosella visits Australia, New Zealand alumni chapters in January

BGS CEO Chris Carosella started 2019 with a trip to our BGS chapters in Auckland, New Zealand and Sydney, Australia.

While in Auckland, Chris was the guest of honor at a special Meet the CEO event for the New Zealand Alumni Chapter and spent some time meeting with advisors, chapter leaders and area BGS members, learning more about how we can serve them better.

From there, Chris traveled to Sydney and had the honor of installing the Australia Alumni Chapter—BGS’ 31st alumni chapter! Thanks to everyone who helped make her trip a fruitful and exciting experience.
