Live Online Event

A2A: Alumni to Alumni

Inspiration, Insights, Innovation

The strength in our network lies in our members, and the best experiences are ones that create meaningful connections and allow members to learn from one another.

A2A: Alumni to Alumni, the newest series of events from The Alumni Society, is a unique peer learning experience that features strategic networking and vibrant Lightning Talks from inspirational thought leaders—all in one dynamic online event.

A2A is designed to provide regional experiences for our members coast-to-coast. As such, we are optimizing each virtual event by time zone to empower localized networking. However, each event will be open to all members from every corner of the country.
