Affinity Groups


Affinity groups are defined as a group of Senior Fellows & Fellows that join together, formally or informally, through a common interest or goal. ALF staff may assist with scheduling convenings,  facilitation and suggesting new members for maximum diversity and connection across classes. To form / join an ALF Affinity Group, or add an existing Affinity Group to our list, contact Senior Director Leng Power at or 209-522-5103.
