Welcome Appalachian Leadership Institute Alumni!

Welcome to the Appalachian Leadership Institute Alumni Page!  Because we have two classes at the same time, we went ahead and moved your information here.

We will continue to add information about upcoming sessions, as well as Graduation. After Graduation, we will add information about alumni events and other opportunities.

If at any time you have a question or need something that you do not see here, please do not hesitate to email us and let us know.
