Leadership Conference



In order to keep our Bruin community safe, we did not host an in person Leadership Conference in 2020. In lieu of this annual conference, we launched our Leaders 2 Leaders series that aims to educate and empower volunteer leaders of UCLA Alumni through on-going leadership development.
