The Alumni Leadership Conference (ALC) is always a fun weekend, full of wonderful alumni who help keep MIT the vibrant, compelling place that it is. MIT relies on volunteers to plan their class reunions; raise much-needed funds for scholarships, fellowships, and the Institute as a whole; organize club and group events around the world; interview and recruit prospective students; serve as a voice within the MIT Corporation; and much, much more.
On Sept. 16-17, some 400 attendees descended on campus for a weekend of networking, idea-sharing, and learning what’s in store for the Institute. Here are just a few photos.

Throughout the weekend, alumni have numerous opportunities to talk to current students. Here, Martin Schrage ’63, who is chair of his reunion gift committee, has a lively conversation with Philine Huizing ’14.
Many of the sessions were interactive. Here, attendees brainstorm as part of the workshop on email marketing.
