Tasmanian Leaders Alumni

All graduates of our programs become Tasmanian Leaders Alumni. This gives all graduates instant membership to an influential, innovative and diverse network of high-impact individuals.

The Tasmanian Leaders Alumni was established after the first Tasmanian Leaders Program in 2007. The Alumni exist to:

  • Sustain and enrich graduates
  • Be a strong and supportive network for continued learning, collaboration and enterprise.
 Alumni Sub-committee

The Alumni Sub-committee is the hard-working engine room of graduates. It strongly supports our pool of graduates with a high-quality program of professional development and social opportunities.

The Alumni Sub-committee strives to keep our Alumni engaged and contributing to the Tasmanian community, in line with our commitment to inspire and build a brighter future for our State.
