Save the Date for the 2015 Alumni Leadership Assembly - February 20-21, 2015!

Alumni Leadership Assembly (ALA) is a weekend full of opportunities for UGA alumni chapter leaders to see and learn how UGA has grown since graduation. The weekend gathering offers unique opportunities for individuals to connect with current students and other chapter leaders while further developing the leadership and organizational skills to lead an alumni chapter. Not only will attendees leave ALA with the tools to improve their chapters, they will also develop relationships with other chapter leaders from across the country.

Reviews from previous ALA attendees:

 “The two times I've attended ALA, I've been able to meet fellow leaders from around the country and share ideas on how to best bring fellow alumni back home together.  Between the formal program and enjoying Athens, it's something I look forward to.”

                Washington DC Chapter of the Alumni Association, President

“Alumni Leadership Assembly is a weekend filled with fun, fellowship, and friends! I always leave with wonderful ideas of ways to improve our chapter. It is great to spend the weekend with people who love UGA just as much as I do.”

“ALA is an essential experience for any chapter leader. Whether you are a new chapter just starting out or a well-established chapter, ALA presents you with valuable tools to help your chapter thrive while allowing you to meet other chapter leaders from all over the country. ALA was essential to helping my chapter go from a new budding chapter that had not even had its first leadership interest meeting to winning the Runner-Up Chapter of the year award.”

                  Darren Liddell, BSFCS ’10, Family and Consumer Sciences
                  Miami Chapter of the Alumni Association, President

"I chose to attend the 2013 ALA to reaffirm my passion for all things UGA.  Traveling to Athens is always a good time, but being able to do so with others that are equally as passionate as I am for their time spent at UGA while continuing to display their commitment to the University in their home town was truly amazing. I came back to Tampa fervent to make our chapter the best it can be.  And since my time at ALA we have gained two new chapter leaders, had several more events, and have had the highest attendance at said events since I've been involved. I would highly recommend attending ALA to any chapter leader looking to gain new insights and ideas on how to spread Dawg love in the home town. Looking forward to next year's ALA!"

“I’ve attended two recent ALA’s; one as chapter vice president and one as chapter president.  Lessons learned from ALA, building friendships, sharing ideas amongst leaders, then translating those ideas to fit Richmond’s local “personality” have been key to increased alumni engagement in our area ultimately leading to our selection as 2013 Chapter of the Year.“
