About AA&A Organization's Program's & Event's

This AA&A programming committee is responsible for the lunch & learns, guest speakers, and other workshops that the AA&A Organization will host. These events are open to the USI community and we always encourage our members to invite someone to one of the programs. It is our hope that through these professional and personal development opportunities we will grow as individuals, as well as foster a sense of community pride and comradery. If you have any suggestions for an event/program/workshop, or if you would be interested in supporting us by volunteering, please do not hesitate to reach out to us here or contact our president Julie Minnette or our secretary Abby Yates.
