Board of Trustees and Organizational Overview

BOT Reception
ASLA is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit professional association. A Board of Trustees (BOT) sets policies and priorities and provides financial oversight. An Executive Committee of the Board serves as the administrative and strategic planning committee of the BOT.

The BOT is composed of one trustee from each of the Society’s 49 chapters and a student representative, as well as the Executive Committee, which includes nationally elected ASLA officers such as the president, president-elect, immediate past president, six vice presidents, executive vice president, treasurer, secretary, and parliamentarian.

ASLA’s strategic objectives fall into four categories--advocacy and awareness, member services and support, supporting the future of the profession, and governance and management--and inform all of the Society’s programs and operations.

A strong volunteer workforce of more than 250 members spread over 30 committees and other groups deploys the mission of the Society.

Select ASLA education and information programs are housed in the ASLA Fund, a separately incorporated 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation, established in 2001. Priorities of the Fund reflect the overall ASLA priorities set by the BOT. The goals and budget for the Fund are integrated into the ASLA Annual Operating Plan (AOP) and budget approved by the BOT.
