Community of Practice
All participants of the ULAA program are welcomed into the ULAA Community of Practice upon completing the initial ULAA program. Joining the ULAA Community of Practice is an opportunity for you to continue growing your networks and leadership skills in the years to come.
In the spring of each year, the U-Lead Advisory Academy will host an alumni retreat. The retreats will be a time to reconnect with familiar mates from your cohort year and meet new alum who are passionate about Minnesota communities. The retreats will be an opportunity to go deeper into leadership topics and to collaborate on community projects of importance to you.
The first annual ULAA Alumni Gathering was held on May 8, 2015 in Otsego.
2016's gathering will be held on Saturday, May 7 at the Minnesota Humanities Center.
In addition to the U of MN Extension sponsored retreat, cohort classes are encouraged to organize their own gathering in conjunction with the retreat. Let us know if your class has something planned and we'll post it on the website.
International Study Tour
Every three years you will have the opportunity to participate in a ULAA international study tour. Join us October 15-24, 2016 (approximate dates) on our inaugural ULAA alumni international study tour to Ecuador. Registration will open on April 18.
