Leaders Wanted

As ILA continues to grow and expand globally, the selection of its governance leaders remains critical to the organization's success and future sustainability.

The ILA Board of Directors

ILA is governed by a 12-person Board of Directors that includes three officers: president, vice president, and immediate past president. All Board members are elected and serve a three-year term.

The Role of the Board

Through its fiduciary oversight, the Board is responsible for the short- and long-term financial health and well-being of the organization. The Board is also charged with advancing ILA's mission, ensuring effective organization planning, participating in Board activities, and maintaining adequate resources.


Board service requires a serious but rewarding commitment of time and energy. Board members spend at least 50 hours a year on ILA activities, excluding travel. Meetings are conducted face to face and virtually. Each Board member is expected to serve on one or more committees or task forces.

Why serve?

Board service is a volunteer position with maximum impact. Those elected become members of ILA's highest level decision-making team, identifying long-term goals and strategizing for programs, services, projects, and initiatives. It is a demonstration of your commitment to ILA and its core mission.
