Officers & Executive Board

Executive Board

The ALA Executive Board consists of the president, president-elect, immediate past president, treasurer, executive director, and eight members elected by Council from its membership for three-year terms. The members of the Executive Board are members of Council as provided by the Constitution [see Article VII, Section 1; Article VIII, Section1; Bylaw Article III, Section 6(c); Bylaw Article IV, Section 2(e)].


The Executive Director is without vote, and the presiding officers of the Council may vote only in the case of a tie. The Executive Board acts for Council in the administration of established policies and programs and is the body that manages within this context the affairs of the Association, delegating management of day-to-day operation to the Association’s executive director.

The Executive Board makes recommendations with respect to policy and operation.

(See Constitution, Article VII, Section 3.)
