Dear ALFA students,

I hope you are having a lovely summer!  Even though much of it must be masked and physically distant from our friends and family, I hope you are able to find some safe and fulfilling activities to occupy your time.

As institutions of higher education across the country work to figure out what our fall semesters will look like in order to protect the safety of their students, faculty, staff, and greater community, we have made the decision to move all of our fall 2020 programming online. For more information please to ALFA Online.

We recognize that this may not have been your hope for the fall, and of course we already miss your faces on our campus and at our partner locations throughout the region, but we really hope that you take the opportunity to try something new and register for one of our wonderful online course and lecture offerings. We have both new and beloved instructors committed to providing you with an incredible experience this fall.

All of our courses will be held over Zoom and we encourage everyone who is thinking about taking a class to sign up for one of the Zoom and Online Learning Training Sessions that is being facilitated by our new ALFA Technology Committee, made up of some of our own ALFA instructors and board members! Find out more below!

I also do want to take a moment to let you know that due to increasing costs associated with providing courses and programming, ALFA has had to increase our fees to $40 a course. Please note that we do, and always will have FREE offerings as well.

Thank you for being part of our community.
