History

In 1992, the ALPA Executive Council was created by the Board of Directors to replace the Executive Committee. The council helps advance the policies and objectives established by the Board of Directors and Executive Board. It has the authority to interpret the association’s constitution and by-laws and policy. All action taken is reported to and subject to review by the Executive Board.

The Executive Council consists of the President, First Vice President, Vice President-Administration/Secretary, Vice President-Finance/Treasurer, and Executive Vice Presidents. It must meet once every three months and can be called into special session if needed. The council mainly covers financial, accounting, organizational and administrative matters, though they also work on public relations, communications, education, legal, membership, retirees and insurance, and affiliations, hiring, awards, scholarships, and donations.
