Our annual Alumni Leadership Conference (ALC) weekend celebrates Middlebury volunteers and leaders. The conference provides insight and tools that will help you in your role as a volunteer. You’ll get an inside look at what’s happening at the College while having fun with fellow alumni. During ALC weekend, class agents, reunion committee members, and Cane Society representatives are invited to stay at Bread Loaf—free of charge. Join us for a great fall weekend in Vermont!
