  • Alpha holds in high regard their responsibility to give back to our community. Whether it is donating their time, working with others, or raising money for a worthy cause, they dedicate themselves to helping others.

  • Alpha has leadership positions, financial responsibilities, and policies and procedures to follow, much like most organizations and companies. There is an executive board of officers as well as other leadership positions. The chance to lead others is not only available, but expected.
