Alumni Leadership Assembly

February 26, 2021 – Virtual

Alumni Leadership Assembly (ALA) is the University of Georgia’s annual gathering of UGA Alumni Association chapter leaders, affinity group council members, and board members. In a normal year, passionate alumni and friends who lead UGA’s 3 affinity councils and more than 80 alumni chapters return to the Classic City for a weekend packed with opportunities to explore how UGA has grown since graduation, to gain the knowledge and tools to effectively lead alumni chapters and affinity groups in support of the university’s mission, and to connect with fellow alumni volunteers to exchange best practices. In 2021, this event is being held virtually for the safety of our volunteers and community.
