The 4 Corners Latinx Leadership Academy brings together leadership expertise from our four ALAS regional affiliates- AZALAS (Arizona), CO-ALAS (Colorado), ALAS de Nuevo México (New Mexico), and ALAS-U (Utah) to provide unique professional development in 4 leadership seminars (two days each) throughout the year.  A special graduation takes place at the end of the seminar sessions.  

The Academy seeks to develop Latinx leaders who aspire to move into executive district/organizational leadership, e.g., executive directors, assistant superintendents, chief officers, and others.
