When we started AALA, we wanted African American leaders to have a place where they were able to network, access information, and have questions answered that will help them become more successful. Since inception, people have been placed on boards, promoted and connected to people making a difference in their profession. As we continue to gain momentum, you too can be a part of the movement. Look over the site, become involved, get connected and L.E.A.D. (Leave Egos At the Door).
