Frequently Asked Questions

What is the ALF Fellows Program?

Each year, ALF selects approximately 24 established leaders from the Tacoma/Pierce County public private and independent sectors to participate in the ALF Fellows program. The one-year program includes monthly seminars on collaborative leadership topics and community issues, a six-day wilderness experience, and a project that the class develops to strengthen the Tacoma/Pierce County community. One of the most important aspects of the program is the strong personal friendships that develop between the Fellows, promoting lifelong relationships that span multiple boundaries.

Who are the ALF Fellows and Senior Fellows?

ALF Fellows are members of the class currently participating in the ALF Fellows Program (currently Class XVI). Senior Fellows are individuals that have participated in and graduated from ALF's Fellows program. See the list of Current Fellows and Senior Fellows.

How does one become an ALF Fellow?

Participation in ALF's Fellows Program is by invitation only. Members are selected for their recognized leadership position in the community, as well as their commitment to collaborative leadership and ongoing civic engagement in the future. The selection process is also designed to create a diverse group within each class of Fellows, bringing together individuals from different sectors, ethnic backgrounds, religious traditions, political affiliations, genders, geographies, and more. Nominations for future Fellows come from ALF Senior Fellows and selected organizations. Nominations are reviewed and invitations extended by the ALF Selection Committee.



Does ALF take positions on community or political issues?

Because ALF primarily serves to bring together diverse leaders to better serve the community, the organization typically does not hold positions on community or political issues. ALF Fellows and Senior Fellows, on the other hand, frequently advocate for positions on community issues, and ALF encourages such activity. The views of ALF Fellows and Senior Fellows, however, should not be construed as those of the organization, its staff, or its Board of Directors.
