Dear UAH Alumni Family,

When you think of "Leadership," who comes to mind?  Bill Gates, George Washington, Vince Lombardi, or ....YOU!  Everyone of us has made a positive impact on the lives of others through our influence.  Whether among our families, friends, co-workers, or community, we influence others in almost everything we do - this is leadership.  There is no more important role in our lives than when we lead others.  Focusing on our leadership skills helps us and everyone in our sphere of influence.  To hone those skills and to learn how others have developed themselves into top leaders is some of the most important training we can participate in.  And it feels great too!

Join us for Leadercast on May 9th and find out how you can become a Leader Worth Following.  

UAH Alumni are leaders in everything we do.  Your UAH Alumni Association is pleased to once again host this great event to learn from some of our time's greatest leaders.  Don't miss out! 

Charge On to great leadership,
David J. Kingsbury
President, UAH Alumni Association
