The Spring Networking Dinner is one of two premiere events each year open to the entire Blackburn community, including students, Fellows, and Advisory Board members. Built on the institute’s value of intergenerational networking, this dinner is an opportunity to come together to break bread and celebrate the collective work of the community. Each year, the new student class is welcomed and graduating students receive their Blackburn pins, symbolizing their transition from students to Fellows.

Thanks to the generous support of Vulcan Materials Company, this event will continue as a cornerstone of our intergenerational networking for Blackburn Advisory Board members, Fellows, and Students. Join us as we congratulate our graduating students, welcome 50 new students, and come together to renew our relationships and commitment to improving the state of Alabama. Attire is business professional.
