Register today for the 2017 MIT Alumni Leadership Conference.

Registration is now open for the 2017 MIT Alumni Leadership Conference, which takes place Sept. 15–16 on MIT’s campus. ALC is an annual convergence of volunteer leaders who can build and strengthen relationships with MIT and one another. The 2017 conference features changes designed to tailor your experience and optimize your time on MIT campus.


  • Celebrate on a new night. The Leadership Awards Dinner, a vibrant celebration of MIT’s most dedicated volunteers, will take place on Friday evening, at the Boston Marriott Cambridge in Kendall Square.
  • Personalize your schedule. Breakout sessions are dedicated to both specific volunteer roles and leadership skills that can help all volunteers.
  • Customize your attendance. Register for the entire conference, a single day, or just the Leadership Awards celebration.

This year’s schedule will feature nearly 50 brainstorming and best-practice sessions designed for new and experienced volunteers. Plus the conference will feature keynotes, lectures, and inside-the-Institute discussions from faculty, current students, and MIT leadership.
