Southern California Chapter

The chapter includes the counties of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Barbara and Ventura.

Region / Chapter Member Care Manager: Carla Cummins

After careful deliberation the organizing committees of A4LE events have decided that it will be in the best interest of all delegates to postpone upcoming events through May. Our number one priority is to ensure the safety and security of our members and delegates. Given the rapid escalation of the COVID – 19 (“Coronavirus”) and subsequent declarations of emergencies and health crisis concerns from local, state, provincial and federal government officials, we felt the need to take this course of action.

At this time, A4LE staff and volunteers are negotiating to find alternative dates that are suitable for postponement of events. The planning committees have promised stellar events, and we do not want to lose that momentum. We will be seeking a remedy to this that will carry all of the hard work forward, taking all events to fruition at a later date. We will continue to update on the progress.

A4LE Adventour!

The tour is cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later time.
