How do I access the membership profiles?

To access the membership profiles, you must first be logged into the ALF website.

To see your own member profile or profiles of other ALF Senior Fellows, Click on "Search ALF Directory" under the For Senior Fellows menu. An alphabetical listing of all Senior Fellows will appear. You may use the "search" function or scroll down the list using the side navigation arrows to locate a specific name. Click on the "advanced search" feature if you would like to search using specific criteria.

To access a member profile, click on the Senior Fellow's name (highlighted in blue) to access the current member profile information.


How do I change my Membership Profile information?

To access/change your membership profile, you must first be logged into the ALF website.

You may access your own membership profile information in two ways:

  • Click the "manage your profile" link in the gray navigation bar (next to where it says Welcome).
  • Under "For Senior Fellows" click "edit my profile."

This will take you to a membership page where you can change your password, change your e-mail address or change your profile information.


How do I search the ALF Senior Fellows Database?

There are four ways to search the ALF Senior Fellow database.

  1. Click on "People" on the blue navigation bar. You do not need to be logged into the ALF Website to use this search feature under the People menu. However, your search results will be limited. Senior Fellows' profile information will not appear, unless you are logged into the ALF website.
  2. Login to the ALF Website. Under either For Fellows or For Senior Fellows, click on "Search ALF Directory."  Enter a Fellow or Senior Fellow's first or last name and click "go."  Your search will create a list. You can click on any of the names listed to pull up that person's profile.
  3. Instead of entering a name, you can enter a word in the search box, and then you will see a list of everyone who has that word in their profile. For example, if you enter "education" you will get a list of everyone with education either in their company name, their ALF affiliation, their interests, or areas of expertise.
  4. You can use Advanced Search (see below).


How do I use the advanced search?

You may search for Fellows/Senior Fellows using the advanced search.  The database can be searched by any one of the following criteria:  ALF Affiliation, Sector, Current and Previous Industries, Areas of Interest, Areas of Expertise, and Education (please note you can only search one of the criteria at a time).

For example, if you wanted to search for all Senior Fellows who attended a certain university, you can select the name of the university and click on the "Go" button.

The database is only as good as its information.  The search will only include Fellows/Senior Fellows who have entered such information into their profiles.


What is American Leadership Forum?

American Leadership Forum (ALF) is a national 501(c)(3) not for-profit organization with local chapter affiliates. In an effort to reweave what John Gardner called the "unraveling social fabric," Joseph Jaworksi founded ALF in 1980 in Houston ( Its mission is "joining and strengthening diverse leaders to better serve the public good."

There are now nine active chapters: Charlotte, North Carolina; Great Valley, California; Houston, Texas; Michigan; Mountain Valley, California; Oregon; Silicon Valley, California; Tacoma, Washington; and Waccamaw Region, South Carolina.


Does ALF take positions on community or political issues?

Because ALF primarily serves to bring together diverse leaders to better serve the community, the organization typically does not hold positions on community or political issues. ALF, as an organization, would require a resolution by the Board of Trustees in order to take a position on any issue. ALF Fellows and Senior Fellows, on the other hand, frequently advocate for positions on community issues, and ALF encourages such activity. The views of ALF Fellows and Senior Fellows, however, should not be construed as those of the organization, its staff, or its Board of Trustees.


What is the cost of the program?

The cost of the program is $3,200 per Fellow, plus a $250 personal commitment. Most Fellows are supported, at least in part, by the corporation or organization for which they work. While ALF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, scholarship help is available to ensure that financial concerns do not prevent a potential Fellow from accepting the invitation.


How are Fellows selected?

Participation in an ALF Fellows Program is by invitation. Members are selected for their demonstrated leadership both at work and in the community, as well as their commitment to the community. Fellows should be willing to challenge their own assumptions, and increase their understanding and awareness of others.

The selection process is designed to create a diverse group within each class of Fellows, bringing together individuals from different sectors, ethnic backgrounds, religious traditions, political affiliations, genders, geographies, and more.
