LAF relies on a Senior Management team working closely with the Board of Directors to develop, manage and implement the initiatives undertaken by the agency. You can view the LAF Organizational Chart, which outlines our agency’s structure.

LAF’s Board of Directors meets five times a year, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., in various law firms in downtown Chicago; and once a year for a Saturday morning retreat at LAF's offices.  For the coming year, Board meetings are scheduled for roughly October, December, February (retreat), April, June, and August.  Specific dates and details are set roughly two weeks before each meeting. All Board meetings are open to the public.  If you want to attend an LAF Board meeting, e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.
