Meet the New Executive Committee

Every two years, LMDA Members vote on an Executive Committee to support the Incoming President. These positions also sit on the larger LMDA Board which handles overall strategy and budget decisions for the organization. They are called Vice Presidents of [insert their specialty here]. 

Most of our Executive Committee Members (our VPs) began their volunteer journey with LMDA as Committee Members working with a VP. 

Check out the new VPs below and reach out if you are interested in volunteering or have a question/idea about their purview of LMDA.
