Governance & Leadership

AHLA has a wonderful tradition of members sharing their expertise and insight with each other. Members who give to each other through speaking, writing and other service to the organization are recognized and often asked to participate in one of the many leadership positions available. At last count, there are about 350 members who hold leadership positions in the Association and hundreds of others who serve AHLA in a variety of ways. All contribute to advancing our educational mission. 

AHLA is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 26 board members. The Board of Directors meets twice a year in person and several times virtually. Board members serve on the following Committees:

  • Education
  • Finance
  • Membership Diversity+Inclusion
  • Nominating
  • Practice Groups and Special Councils

An Executive Committee composed of 8 members meets 4-6 times a year in person and by phone.

Strategic Plans

AHLA’s 2019‐2022 Strategic Plan, adopted at the June 2018 Board meeting, provides a blueprint for how AHLA will continue to adapt to meet the needs of its more than 14,000 members as they navigate changes in the practice of law as well as changes in health law and the health industry.
