Leadership Alabama is finally moving ahead again! On the heels of countless Zoom sessions, remote board meetings and scheduled, postponed and rescheduled retreats and celebrations, we are thrilled to announce that Leadership Alabama Class XXXI will launch on October 7 in Montgomery, Alabama Leadership Initiative (ALI) Class IV will start its program year in November and plans are being finalized for the “30 and STILL Holding!” anniversary celebration on Wednesday, July 27, through Friday, July 29, 2022 at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear. Additionally, after an August break, the Leadership Alabama Commission on Race and Equity (LACRE) is ready to jump back into its very important work.
As the work accelerates, we started this fiscal year (July 1) with a streamlined budget, eliminating additional expenses from the general operating budget after eliminating $26,000 last year. We were very conservative when establishing the 2021/2022 budget, and we continue to look for ways to streamline processes and reduce expenses.
None of this work would be possible without your steadfast, ongoing support through your annual dues and contributions, and we are extremely thankful! Without question, membership dues & your additional gifts are the lifeline of our organization, and we humbly ask you to submit your $175 dues for this fiscal year, 2021 – 2022.
Since establishing the category of donors who contribute $500 or more through their dues & contributions – Gold Circle Donors – the membership in this category has exploded. Last year, 145 of you gave at this level, compared to 79 and 52 in the years preceding – thank you!
