Dedicated arts professionals are united HERE!
The Leadership Council (LC) is an elected cohort of emerging arts leaders that steers, plans, and implements the programs and development of EAL/LA. This unique program provides professional development experience and training through the process of steering an organization and carrying out its mission.
The LC is made up of three committees: Programming, Development, and Marketing/Communications. A sub-committee manages the Protégé program.

EAL/LA Advisory Board
The Advisory Board is an oversight group made up of former EAL/LA Leadership Council members - and members of the community, as deemed appropriate by the Advisory Board - who are interested in advancing the mission of EAL/LA.
Advisory Board members offer their time, talent, and resources to support the current Leadership Council cohort and the overall work of the organization.
