Leadership Omaha Alumni Association

Graduates of Leadership Omaha, and similar programs from other communities, are eligible to be part of the Leadership Omaha Alumni Association (LOAA). LOAA facilitates connections among its members and provides information about current community issues and needs, all with the goal of establishing, promoting and fostering leadership in Greater Omaha.
We want to highlight the impact of LO grads. Let us know what great things you (or your classmates) are up to! We’re interested in your community involvement, professional successes and personal stories. Help us celebrate leadership in our community.
