Exemplary Leader Award Dinner
Each year, the Mountain Valley Chapter honors a Greater Sacramento region leader who represents the cornerstones of ALF. The award recipient thinks and works regionally, values diversity, and is a successful collaborative leader.
The annual dinner attracts the region's decision- and opinion-makers to celebrate the award recipient's accomplishments. Attended by over 500 people, including most of the members of ALF-MV, the dinner celebrates leadership and the growing network of ALF members.
