ALAS BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Interested in serving on the ALAS Board of Directors?

ALAS is requesting each state/regional Affiliate to nominate one candidate for the ALAS Board of Directors. Per ALAS bylaws, nominees must currently be serving at the executive level (e.g., superintendent, assistant superintendent, or other similar executive level position). The names of qualifying nominees will be included on a ballot, which will be put to the Affiliates for a vote to select one individual to represent them. Each Affiliate will have one vote. The selected nominee will be brought before the ALAS Board of Directors for a vote at the October 2018 Board meeting.
