It's back!  AL!VE is pleased to partner again with Better Impact to provide another professional development opportunity.  A hybrid conference means the presenters come to you via live streaming.  You meet locally with your colleagues and interact virtually with the presenters.

Mark your calendar for the week of September 12.  This year's Hybrid Conference will be streamed from the Orlando, Florida area on September 12 & 13  (one day each for Eastern/Central and Mountain/Pacific time zones).  We will have more information soon!

Mentoring: Reach out, connect, learn and share

     As a AL!VE member, you are our best advocate!
Share the benefits of AL!VE membership with your colleagues through our Mentor-to-Member Campaign. The campaign runs January 1 through April 30, 2016.
    There is no better promoter of AL!VE membership than you. We even make it easy for you!

Renew your membership or join for the first time, and a complimentary membership for the first twelve months will be offered on your behalf to a young professional.  We will match you with someone to mentor (or supply your own).

Want to join and be mentored?  Sign up and we will match you.

    Want to learn more?  Attend a webinar on January 20 about mentoring, being a mentee, and AL!VE's special promotion.
