About LMA

2019 Search Task Force

The Search Task Force includes LMA volunteer leaders who have been key advocates of and ambassadors for many of the significant changes you have seen over the last few months and years. The task force will work closely with Vetted Solutions – our chosen executive search firm – and the LMA Board of Directors over the next few months to ensure that LMA realizes an efficient, thorough, and thoughtful process to find our next chief executive.
