How Our Board Typically Looks Like

ILEA is part of an international organization. Each chapter, like ours, has programs and events and is run by volunteers on the Board and Committees of each chapter. We have a President, President-Elect, and generally 3 committees – Membership, Programs and Communications. Each committee is chaired by a Vice President (VP). On the Board, the number of combined Officers and Directors-At-Large is thirteen.

Being a Director or VP is a Great Way to Get to Know Everyone!

Being An Officer

President and VP Positions are annually nominated and elected by membership. You do not need prior experience to apply, but you do have to be an ILEA member (corporate or individual membership)!  If you are interested in a leadership opportunity, please contact us today!  

Being A Director-At-Large

Directors typically serve a two-year term. Each director also participates on a committee: Membership, Communications and Programs.  These are all areas where you can serve the chapter and make many new connections and learn new skills.
