Alumni Association

The Leadership Chattanooga Alumni Association (LCAA) is a membership organization made up of Leadership Chattanooga graduates. LCAA's mission is to provide its diverse membership with continued leadership training and opportunities for networking and civic engagement.

Dues are $60 per calendar year.

In 2018, we held monthly “Regatherings” on the third Tuesday of each month and rotated between AM and PM events.

The Graduates Program committee held monthly “Lunch and Learn” events with topics of interest in the community.

In election years, LCAA encourages voter participation through our “Your Vote Matters” Campaign.

Additionally, LCAA supports both the Leadership Chattanooga Program and the YMCA’s Youth Leadership Chattanooga program with scholarships and monetary donations.

Standing LCAA Committees include Social Enrichment, Graduate Programs, Communications, Community Service, and your Vote Matters.

To learn more about membership, contact LCAA president, Rhey Houston here.
