Help Advance LMA as a Volunteer Leader

If you’re looking into the pathway toward taking a leadership role within LMA but don’t know where to start, review our many opportunities below.

There are many reasons to get involved – from giving back to the organization, to expanding your leadership skills, gaining industry knowledge and creating an international professional network and lifelong friends. Below is information for the LMA Board of Directors, our regional governing boards and local steering committees.

International Board

The International Board of Directors, through the Nominating Committee, has begun its annual process of determining the slate of candidates to fill open seats on the 2024 board. After a diligent and thorough process over the next few months, LMA members will ratify the International Board slate in August 2023, and our new board members will begin their service in January 2024.

Eligible members can submit their interest in serving on the International Board of Directors by nominating themselves to be included on the slate or submitting a referral candidate in the referral section to our expression of interest survey. If there is an individual you feel would be well suited for any of the open LMA Board of Directors positions that you would like to refer, please provide their information in the survey. LMA Staff will follow up with this individual, letting them know they have been suggested to submit and your referral will remain anonymous. 

LMA seeks to fill the following voting International Board positions:

  • President-Elect (3-years: President-Elect in 2024, President in 2025, Immediate Past-President in 2026)
  • Treasurer-Elect (2-years: Treasurer-Elect in 2024, Treasurer in 2025)
  • 3 At-Large Board Members (2-years: January 1, 2024– December 31, 2025)
  • Regional Leaders’ Committee (“RLC”) Chair (1-year: January 1, 2024– December 31, 2024)

Next Steps

To begin the International Board nomination process, review the Eligibility Criteria. If you satisfy the criteria or want to refer someone who would, then complete the International Board of Directors Expression of Interest Form. Expressions of Interest for International Board positions are due by 5:00 p.m. CT on Monday, May 15. 

Once the Expression of Interest closes, the Nominating Committee will verify eligibility, interview candidates and references, and put forth a slate for ratification by the membership.

If you have questions, please see the FAQ document or contact Nominating Committee Chair and Immediate Past President Brenda Plowman, or Director of Global Operations and Strategy, Ashley Stenger.
