Leadership Dubuque Alumni
Staying Engaged and Giving Back
It is expected that Leadership Dubuque Alumni (LDA), as trustees of our community, will go forth and participate in constructive community change. They are also encouraged to serve on committees, boards, and organizations throughout the city. Alumni have the responsibility to ensure the perpetuation of leadership in the Dubuque Area; therefore, it is expected that they will support the work of Leadership Dubuque as program advisors and committee members.
Attend our next LDA quarterly meeting
Leadership Dubuque Alumni will have quarterly meetings with top-level presentations and topics exclusively for LDA to attend.
Be Bright. Be Brief. Be Gone.
The Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce invites all Leadership Dubuque Alumni (LDA) to join us on Thursday, July 26 from 4 - 5 p.m. at Diamond Jo Casino.
