10:15 AM - 3:45 PM
Each year at Alliance we bring in one international and two local Community Service organizations. Giving back to both international and local area programs is very important to us as an organization. We hope to see each attendee take the time to join in one or all three of the Alliance 2017 Community Service projects. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com. All community service groups will be located by the registration desk on Level 1 of the Conference Center.
