ALC attendees will have many opportunities to share their thoughts and experiences on leading and serving – how and why they do it, the value of each, and the impact of each within their lives and their communities. The conference will use social media, a town hall meeting, brain trusts and personal interaction to further encourage discussions and follow-up conversations among attendees.

ALC provides an outlet to highlight the mission of CBCF – to develop leaders, to inform policy and to educate the public - by providing more than 85-high level, thought-provoking forums to address the critical challenges facing the African-American Diaspora.
