WELCOME TO THE UCONN ADULT LEARNING PROGRAM
More than 100 ALP members took advantage of a beautiful spring day to attend our Annual Meeting on June 4th at Seabury. Due to a last minute, unavoidable scheduling conflict, our guest speaker, Michael Freimuth, Executive Director of the Capital Region Development Authority, was unable to attend, but he did make arrangements for a wonderful replacement: Suzanne Hopgood, award winning author, head of her own financial and legal consulting firm, member of nine companies' board of directors and current Commissioner for the Hartford Redevelopment Agency (HRA). Ms Hopgood provided us with an educational and entertaining slide presentation of HRA's success and challenges in the ongoing planning and development of housing and businesses to meet the long range needs of the Hartford community and its surrounding area.
Following the presentation, members were presented with a very positive status report on ALP's viability. Record membership and financial stability numbers indicate that ALP continues to grow and is managed by a capable and dedicated team of volunteers. New members of the Board of Directors were unanimously elected to replace those members who had reached their maximum term of service. Following the business meeting, members were treated to a buffet luncheon catered by the very capable Seabury staff.

We've added a new page to our website for those of you who may have missed or are interested in a specific class. The page contains links to written reviews and audio recordings of classes already held. See "Class Reviews and Recordings" in the CLASSES drop down menu or just click here.
SEABURY PARKING FOR CLASSES
Seabury is pleased to offer parking for all ALP classes at the convenient Hilltop Parking Lot at the north end of our campus (near the raised garden beds and pickleball court). After parking, ALP members may enter the door with the large awning across the parking lot where there will be signs to direct you to your classrooms. Park in unnumbered spaces only.
For special events like the preview meetings or annual meeting, we will continue to provide shuttle service to Seabury's Main Entrance from the parking lot at the Chinese Baptist Church adjacent to Seabury.
If you have a temporary or permanent disability that makes it difficult for you to get to your class from the Hilltop parking lot, use the parking lot by the new chapel on your right as you enter Seabury. Then take the short walk to the main entrance. Valet parking is no longer available.
There is NO PARKING along the curb across from the main entrance. You will be ticketed!
We could use more help. If you would like to "give something back" to our Adult Learning Program in return for all that you've received (or are about to receive), please let an ALP board member know! At your next ALP session, let the registrar know that you are interested, and someone will get in touch to see how you can be of service.
