Association Leadership Program

One of the unique benefits of being a volunteer leader with CUPA-HR is the annual Association Leadership Program (ALP). For more than 15 years, we’ve celebrated the beginning of each new membership year with a gathering of the association’s board of directors, region boards, chapter leaders, national office leadership team and key corporate partners. This is an invitation-only event. Invitations are sent in the spring prior to the event.
