The Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (ALAS) has launched the Voices of ALAS Institute, a webinar series which highlights the professional expertise and experience of ALAS members while also providing professional growth opportunities for participants.

The Voices of ALAS Institute webinar series was developed by ALAS’ Professional Growth & Leadership Development Affinity Committee to elevate the voices of ALAS members by providing a forum for them to share their expertise, experience and passion on subjects of interest and need. Members have the opportunity to earn one hour of university professional development credit for each event they attend.
“One of the best ways to grow as a leader is to learn from one’s peers, and we have some amazing experts who are members of ALAS,” said ALAS Executive Director Dr. Maria Armstrong. “Our Voices of ALAS Institute highlights the amazing expertise and unique perspective of our members and allows others to learn from their best practices. The inaugural webinar is free and open to the public, offering a perfect opportunity to learn more about ALAS and the type of programming we provide for members.”
