LEAD Atlanta Alumni

Welcome to the LEAD Atlanta Alumni Page

In 2011, Leadership Atlanta launched the LEAD Atlanta Alumni Association in order to better serve the growing body of LEAD Atlanta alumni. Through programmatic and social events, the Alumni Association aims to maintain and maximize relationships among LEAD Atlanta alumni in order to better the metro Atlanta community. Continued opportunities for professional and personal development will allow alumni to continue their leadership growth and will encourage greater community engagement. Online communication hubs will allow LEAD Atlanta alumni to interact with and assist one another in their civic endeavors.

This committee organizes all efforts to keep LEAD Atlanta Alumni members engaged. Each class will have two designated Class Captains who will be responsible for encouraging event attendance and collecting career and community accomplishments for their respective classes.

Socials

These after-work events will provide opportunities for alumni to connect in casual and fun settings. This committee will also help to plan the annual Holiday Party.
