Alumni Volunteer Leadership Conference

April 27 - 29, 2023

The Alumni Volunteer Leadership Conference (AVLC) is a great opportunity for the University of Florida Alumni Association’s Board of Directors and Gator Club® and Affiliate Group leaders to connect, collaborate and celebrate the unrelenting spirit of the Gator Nation®. The program includes pre-conference sessions Thursday afternoon followed by a welcome reception, conference-style presentations, panel discussions, and topic-focused sessions all-day Friday and Saturday morning. In addition, Friday evening is filled with celebration as outstanding alumni, Gator Club® and Affiliate Groups are recognized at the Clubbies Award Reception.

Our goal is for Gator Club® and Affiliate Group officers to return to their communities inspired, empowered and with a better understanding of their roles, responsibilities, and best practices. During AVLC, the UF Alumni Association strives to provide alumni volunteer leaders with the tools and resources to successfully build, develop and lead Gator Clubs® and Affiliate Groups in support of the University of Florida’s journey to Go Greater!

REGISTRATION OPENING SOON! A completed registration confirming your attendance to AVLC 2023 is due by Sunday, April 9, 2023. Each member of your Gator Club®/Affiliate Group who will attend must complete the registration process. There is no registration fee for current Gator Club® and Affiliate Group officers.

We hope you’re excited to experience a few days filled with professional and leadership development opportunities, learning from Top 5 guest speakers, connecting with fellow Gators, and discovering UF’s latest and greatest programs via campus tours! The AVLC 2023 Program will be available soon.
