Who We Are

We are a professional society 501(c) 6 under the United States Internal Revenue Code.  We formed our Chapter in 1992 and incorporated in 2013.  Our principal office is located at 7 St. Paul Street, Suite 600, Baltimore, MD 21202.  We operate with a local Board of Directors.  LAI functions as a confederation of Chapters. The Presidents of each local Chapter are members of the LAI’s Board of Governors.  The International Secretariat (International) plays a vital role in enabling the Chapters of Lambda Alpha to function together as an honorary society and serves as the unifying element of LAI. The Board of Governors sets the policy framework and manages the overall affairs of LAI.
