As a volunteer-run organization IALFM depends heavily on responsible volunteers for its various functions and services. BOD has commissioned different committees to serve the needs of the community. These committees consist of volunteers from our community. Most committees have at least one BOD Representative who may also head the committee, if needed, while other committees are lead by volunteers from our community.
