Become a Volunteer Leader

Ideal volunteers are those willing and able to step outside their own individual experiences to consider what’s best for the LMA as a whole. If you are unsure where you fit in, please review our core qualities of great volunteer leaders. All volunteers must be LMA members in good standing in order to serve.
