Alumni Leader Weekend

Fulbright Academy Leaders Weekend

The Fulbright Academy connects and empowers
Collaboration yields greater impacts than when working alone.

The Academy Leaders Weekend occurs three times per year.  

The Fall Weekend is an opportunity for Fulbrighters to meet fellow alums and Fulbright hosts who are making a difference in the world.  

The weekend is an opportunity for our members, donors and other constituents to gather and discuss strategy for making our organization ever-more relevant to the Fulbright community. The program also provides education and training; the November meeting is focused on the needs of alumni in the education community and the international business community. And the Friday evening program is an opportunity for us to recognize those individuals who have made a tremendous difference by hosting visiting Fulbright scholars.  

Come for several days or come for just a few hours.  November 9-11, 2011 at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden/Denver, Colorado

The participants are the members of our Board of Directors, leaders of our Affinity Groups, representatives from our institutional members and key partners and donors.  The program is open to all, so we also have individuals who are alums, current grantees, hosts and friends of the Fulbright Academy.  Accommodations are at the Table Mountain Inn in Golden, Colorado.  Tel: 303-277-9898.
