About Us

    Board and Staff

    AALNC is led by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by a staff at national headquarters. For more information about the people in these positions, click the links below. 

    Board of Directors

    AALNC's Board of Directors consists of the officers and three Directors-at-Large. The officers are the President, President-Elect, Immediate Past President, and the Secretary/Treasurer. The Directors-at-Large serve as liaisons between the board and the members and chapters in particular states.

    Individual members and chapter leaders are welcome to contact any member of the board or the Director-at-Large assigned to the state in which they live. To identify your Director-at-Large, contact our headquarters team at info@aalnc.org. To view a listing of past AALNC leadership, please click here.
