About LALA: Governance

In late 2012, LALA provider members voted to amend the Association bylaws, which had been adopted in 1999, to accomplish the following:

  • Bring the bylaws in compliance with current IRS guidelines and state laws related to association governance;
  • Better define and clarify the Association's membership categories and member voting privileges;
  • Improve our Association voting procedures and allow for electronic balloting for election of officers and other Association voting matters;
  • Change from Regional Representative Board Members to At-Large Representatives, to provide more opportunities for Board service and better representative of membership overall;
  • Update the roles and duties of the Executive Director and Officers;
  • Move to one-year terms for all Board positions;
  • Remove sections that are not required to be included in the bylaws that can be more effectively addressed in Association policies and procedures.

Following the adoption of the amendments to the LALA Bylaws, the Board of Directors developed and adopted policies and procedures pertaining to online voting for the Board of Directors. CLICK HERE to view the Electronic Voting Policy.
