Board of Directors

NAMLE is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors that works through an active committee structure to conduct the business of the organization and plan its future. The Board meets every year for a three-day board retreat and monthly by conference call. New members are elected by existing board members according to guidelines in NAMLE’s bylaws.

NAMLE is indebted to the following women and men (and the institutions that may support their NAMLE Board service) for their time and energy, expertise and passionate commitment to advancing the cause of media literacy education in the United States.
