ALN Advisory Council

The ALN is also privileged to have an Advisory Council of community leaders who volunteer their time and expertise as an Ad Hoc Committee of the ALN. This group functions within a set of established by-laws to advise the ALN President, Board of Directors and Executive Director regarding program elements, operational structure, and organizational challenges. Advisory Council members advocate for program development, effective partnerships, and funding opportunities.
