Board of Directors
AALNC's Board of Directors establishes a strategic plan to achieve the mission and goals of the organization. In order to accomplish this; the Board sets policies, directs current and future activities, and manages the organization's elected officers, directors, volunteers, JLNC Editor, Director of Programs and Education, and Headquarters staff. The Board of Directors has direct fiduciary responsibility and is responsible to the membership from which it was elected.
