Learning in A.L.L. is a social as well as an academic experience. Common intellectual and creative concerns often provide a foundation for new friendships. Various A.L.L. business and social meetings held each term allow members to extend relationships formed in study groups.
Business meetings consist of committee meetings, general membership meetings and the annual meeting.
Although other events are termed "social," they always include an academic component. Annual gatherings in this category include the New Member Welcome and All-Member Socials, the Holiday Luncheon, Winter Socials and the Annual Meeting/Luncheon.
The Academy encourages members to plan other outside events with the approval of the executive council. Activities which have previously been offered have included museum visits and attending theatrical performances. These have often served as an enrichment to a study group course of study.
