Leadership Lynchburg’s Alumni Programming offers continued access to community leaders and organizations while expanding your personal network. With social and educational events, alumni are invited to inspiring and informative events to help grow deeper roots as a community leader and foster community engagement.
In 2002, the Leadership Lynchburg Alumni Association (LLAA) was formed to continue the growth and professional development opportunities found in the program and to provide an avenue for graduate volunteer service, class recruiting, and networking. Alumni also fill the role of consultants to current class members. This includes oversight and expertise to the class members in planning and carrying out each session of the program.
Why an Alumni Association?
The Alumni Association provides a vehicle for alumni to stay in touch. This is accomplished by providing periodic networking opportunities and skills workshops on emerging leadership issues, as well as roundtable discussions centered around leadership development in the community and the business world. They also have the opportunity to cultivate new friendships, utilize the skills learned in the program and to provide leadership that is much needed via community committees and boards. This is a win-win situation with alumni, the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance, and the community all coming out on top.
Ways to stay connected:
1. Attend an Alumni Workshop/Seminar:
