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.
