Leaders Weekend 2018

Leaders Weekend is a gathering of the UFAA’s Board of Directors and Gator Club and Affiliate Group leaders, for a weekend of meeting, training, and recognition of service and excellence of our Gator Nation networks from the past year.  Mark your calendars now as this is sure to be a weekend for Gator Club and Affiliate Group leaders not to miss. All events take place in Emerson Alumni Hall and the attire is business casual unless otherwise stated.

To register for Leaders Weekend, one officer from each Gator Club and Affiliate Group should email rsvp@ufalumni.ufl.edu with the club/group name, officer names, officer titles/positions and emails of your club/group officers who will be attending.  If your club/group president is attending and is a first time president, please let us know.
