Program*

Challenges for the 2019 Program: What is our Value Proposition? What value do we deliver to our delegates that comes with a UP Stamp of Excellence or the UP brand?

  • How do we honor and celebrate excellence in and from UP Alumni? (LEAD)

  • How do we challenge the UP Alumni to be better than best? (ELEVATE)

  • Reunions always look at the past but can this also be a moment to conjure a vision of the “UP of the Future”? (ADVANCE)

  • How can we make our UP Alumni and UP organizations become the new, improved agents of change, something that has always been part of our history and the  “UP Brand” of community action? (PARTICIPATE)
