Alumni Development Events are created by LAA Member "Event Champions" to benefit more than 1500 LAA graduates and the community at large. Although LAA Staff supports all event logistics (venue and/or virtual coordination, marketing, etc.), Event Champions take the lead on agenda, content and sponsor development.

All LAA Members in good standing are invited to submit an Event Champion Application for review by the Alumni Forum. Event formats are detailed below along with links to event application forms.
