Officers and Board of Directors

Our board is comprised of education law professionals who set a course for success each year. This balanced group represents a stakeholder cross-section and is focused on the needs of the organization as a whole. The Board of Directors meets at the beginning and end of the annual conference, and during a special two-day meeting in May at the ELA headquarters. Members of the Executive Committee each serve a one-year term, and the remaining directors serve three-year terms.
