The ALP mission is to enhance the effectiveness of leadership programs and professionals. The association believes true, organic community leadership involves looking at situations, opportunities, or challenges through the lens of the whole community, and pursuing a course that builds the well-being of all. Our membership is open to leadership organizations/programs, whether based in a chamber of commerce, university, government, or similar entity, or as an independent (non-profit) organization. Among the many benefits offered to members, building relationships, sharing best practices, and connecting with others in our field, are among the top requests. The searchable database and the Resource Library have a wealth of information for strengthening and growing leadership programs.
