ALP Names Volunteers of the Quarter

VOLUNTEERS OF THE QUARTER | Q4 2024 - April 1, 2024 - June 30, 2024

In October 2023, the Association of Leadership Programs announced a new recognition program for our volunteers. ALP will accept nominations each quarter and select four Volunteers of the Quarter. At the year's culmination, a Volunteer of the Year will be chosen by a special committee and recognized annually at the ALP National Conference. This recognition program will run on a July 1 – June 30 cycle. 

Join us in celebrating our Q4 2023 - 2024 Volunteers of the Quarter! We're honored to be able to recognize these dedicated Association of Leadership Programs volunteers who work tirelessly to enhance the impact of Community Leadership Programs around the nation.
