A Message from the President 

Devin Lavelle
It is an honor to be entrusted with the leadership of the Hornets Policy & Politics Alumni. I have big shoes to fill. Outgoing President Eric Guerra and founding President Josh Rosa have accomplished an amazing amount in the Chapter's first two years.

Under their leadership, our Chapter went from a good idea discussed over coffee, to the Sacramento State Alumni Association's 2014 Chapter of the Year; our signature speaker series, "What's Possible", has featured esteemed and innovative leaders in policy, politics and public administration, including LG Gavin Newsom, Reinventing Government author Ted Gaebler, Mayors Christopher Cabaldon and Pam O'Conner, author of the Federal Government Performance and Results Act John Mercer and several other elected officials, administrators and innovators; we have supported the university and help raise awareness of the talent and leadership alumni have provided in this community.

We have a great year planned. We will host a number of events over the rest of the year to celebrate the achievements of Sacramento State Alumni, support its programs and mentor up and coming civic leaders. I am lucky to have the support of a tremendous board, whose efforts will make all of this possible. 


Devin Lavelle, MPPA '11
