ALDE Listens to Help You Grow

"ALDE listens, it follows through and it has given me the opportunity to lead even though I am newer in my career. After one conversation with Phyllis, the Executive Director, just days later I was asked to not only join but to lead the ALDE Communications Team. This opportunity has allowed me to further develop my leadership skills while working together to improve the outreach of the ALDE network."

-Jamie Lennon - Capital Campaign Coordinator,  LSS of South Dakota - Sioux Falls, South Dakota
