Fall Alumni Reception

The annual fall alumni reception is an opportunity for our members to meet the incoming Leadership Quest class, reconnect with their classmates, and mingle with other alums.

Thank you to everyone that attended the 2022 Fall Alumni Reception at Ashton Creek Vineyard. 

Spring Luncheon

The annual spring luncheon brings LMR members together for an afternoon of fine dining and fellowship in downtown Richmond, and celebrates the winners of the annual Ukrop Community Vision Award and the Leader Who Serves Award.


Creating safe spaces that require trust, invite vulnerability and foster relationships among this region's community leaders is part of the LMR mission. On the first Thursday of every month, LMR in partnership with Rita Ricks (LMR '89) will host a small group of female alumni for authentic conversation around both their challenges and their hopes for the future. We must be comfortable speaking our truth and be comfortable with some disagreement. It's how we grow and make a difference.

Date: First Thursday of the month

Time: 6:00PM - 7:30PM

Location: Women’s Business Center, 1510 Willow Lawn Dr., Suite 100, Richmond, VA 23230 (Via Zoom during the months of January and February).


Registration emails are sent directly to LMR Alumnae, and advertised in the private LMR LinkedIn group here.
