ALF Program Goals
The American Leadership Forum of Oregon's key program goals include:
The American Leadership Forum of Oregon seeks to develop both a sense of personal responsibility for leadership and change in the state, while creating a network of leaders with established bonds of trust and mutual support. The ALF program consists of three parts: an annual Fellows program for a class of approximately 15-20 community, government and business leaders; a commitment to service to provide the opportunity to work together and create outcomes as a team; and an ongoing program to build and mobilize a network of Senior Fellows (those that have completed the Fellows program) from all classes.
The Fellows Program
The annual Fellows program consists of three elements:
Graduates of the American Leadership Forum are called Senior Fellows, and use the skills and connections gained from their ALF experience to further impact their state and community. Senior Fellows events expand opportunities to continue to connect and work together on community issues, and include statewide forums, regional lunches, workshops, dinner events, and other activities. The resulting expanding network is a vital resource for both the various communities served by the American Leadership Forum of Oregon and for the Senior Fellows themselves.
There are currently approximately 700 Senior Fellows who have graduated from the Oregon chapter.
