Who We Are

The mission of The Chicago Leadership Alliance (CLA) is to connect and empower local Millennial leaders in order to drive action and progress in Chicago.

We provide our community of members with a platform to engage with Chicago’s many great organizations & leaders, while also serving as a forum to leverage collective resources, talents, contacts and ideas – all for the purpose of launching initiatives, benefitting others and to accomplish otherwise unobtainable objectives.

PS – We play kickball, too.

Through organized leadership and structure, there are four main components that guide The CLA:
