Each year, Charlotte alumni get the chance to attend a professional development event hosted by their local alumni chapter. This year's special event delivered opportunities to networkand ultimately, a panel of four talented Elon alumni.

The alumni chapter hosted its event on Jan. 24 at the NASCAR Hall of Fame with four terrific alumni speakers who have demonstrated much success, growth, and various experiences throughout their careers.

Each spring, Elon's largest alumni chapters host professional development events to provide lifelong learning to the area's alumni. Alumni have the opportunity to learn, listen to alumni stories, and develop professionally. These events feature a variety of components such as a panel of alumni speakers, breakout sessions about relevant topics, professional communication assistance, unstructured networking, and more.
