Board of Directors

The American Latvian Association is governed by a Board of Directors that is elected annually at a Congress held to discuss issues and set priorities. Congresses are held in different cities each year to encourage geographically distributed participation.

Currently the ALA Board of Directors consists of 9 fully fledged members (plus chairs of the Cultural Foundation and the Latvian Institute), all of whom serve as unpaid volunteers. The President and Board Chair since 2015 has been Pēteris Blumbergs.
