When members of the Leadership Allegany! Class of 2015 graduated in June they joined the ranks of almost 420 individuals who have graduated from the leadership program. To allow graduates an opportunity to continue networking with fellow classmates and interact with other alumni graduates the Alumni Committee was created. On a monthly basis Alumni Committee members meet to develop social, networking and educational programs.
To assist future class members the Leadership Allegany! Scholarship Fund was created to make the program available to individuals whose financial resources may prohibit or restrict their involvement. Small business owners, non-profit agencies, and interested individuals are the primary target group for the scholarship fund, but funds are available to everyone. To date, 57 individuals have accessed over $21,800 from the scholarship fund from the first Class of 1998 through the current Class of 2015. 14% of the Leadership Allegany! alumni have been given an otherwise unavailable opportunity to learn about our region, develop their leadership skills, and make a positive impact in our county and communities through the Scholarship Fund. The scholarship fund covers up to 50% of the tuition. We hope you will consider contributing to the scholarship fund as we continue to provide educational and leadership opportunities to all members of our region.
We extend special thanks to members of the Alumni Association for their contributions, time, and energy in keeping the Leadership Allegany! experience alive and for building opportunities for other leaders.
Alumni members are notified of upcoming events by way of e-mail. If you are not receiving emails please contact the Chamber office with your updated information. Stay Involved – Your Leadership Allegany! adventure does not have to end at graduation!
