A member of the GLBT Alumni Association, Kalina has been unwavering in her support of the group's membership initiatives, outreach events and scholarship fundraising during the time her partner, Kim Davis, was president. Membership in the GLBTAA increased significantly under Davis' leadership and Kalina's efforts. Kalina continues her participation in the GLBT Alumni Association even now as Davis has become an at-large member of the IUAA (IU Alumni Association) Executive Council.
