ALAS currently has 17 State Affiliates across the nation. Their primary mission is to increase the support and networking for Latinx leaders as well as advocate for all students, especially the underrepresented Latinx students in their state communities. They are an extension of ALAS by which they serve to build a solid network of influence and advocacy at the national level.

  • 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.
  • Once all nominations are received by the deadline, the bylaws committee will provide the voting process. 
  • The selected nominee will be brought before the ALAS Board of Directors for final review at the October 2019 Board meeting.
