FAQS - The Lady Alliance


What are you exactly? A community? A company?

The short answer… both… kinda? The Lady Alliance is a community of women dedicated to encouraging and empowering other women to be the best versions of themselves. Easy peasy. You can join the community through our Facebook Groups, Instagram, Meet Up, or by purchasing a membership. We want to encourage involvement and you can do this in many ways: local or global events, applying to be an Chapter Coordinator, submitting photos for our Instagram page, or writing posts for our stories, and more!

We offer events all around North America and beyond. It’s part of our mission, so we offer them at a low cost. Not every event is able to meet every budget, but we’re hoping that there’s something for everyone! 

How are The Lady Alliance events different from others?

The number one goal is to introduce you to other inspiring, kick-ass, incredible women. It’s all about building our empowerment community! Our second goal is to introduce you to the outdoors. It’s quite the thing to witness, putting a group of women who are passionate about the outdoors in an epic location. We know it’s a cliche thing to say… but it’s where the magic happens.

How much does it cost, and where does the money go?

The cost varies from event to event, so you’ll need to look at each event for more information. However, we do our best to keep them as affordable as possible. This is something we have thought long and hard about! It’s our mission to get as many women experiencing our community events as we can! You’d be hard-pressed to find another company that offers prices as competitive as we do.

The Lady Alliance has full time staff and regular expenses to cover - we want to bring you even more incredible events!
