A Word From Our President


Welcome Alford's! It is with great pleasure that we introduce the mission and vision of the Alford Family Council.  We have been working hard since our formation to deliver on the promises made at the 2016 Alford Reunion.

Our vision is threefold:

  - Articulate, pursue, and achieve family participation through

gathering together and communication

  - Understand and develop programs in support of scholarships, education and resources

  - Have a significant, positive impact on the younger and future generations of the Alford family.

Our full council meets quarterly and we invite you dial  in to hear more about the work that is being done.

We thank you for the opportunity and look forward to helping the Alford dream come to fruition.
