The LDP enlists member volunteers to shadow a Practice Group or Task Force Vice Chair, assist with specific tasks and projects, learn the ropes of AHLA, and perhaps become future AHLA leaders. Openings are handled through a call for leaders, with each PG and TF selecting up to three participants. Any Practice Group member interested in becoming more involved at the Practice Group/Task Force level may apply to participate in the Leadership Development Program (LDP). The only prerequisites are a desire to be an active participant and current status as a member of the Practice Group or Task Force in which you would like to participate. We encourage longtime AHLA volunteers and new members alike to get involved. However, past LDP participants are not eligible to apply. In addition, because members may only hold one role during a given year, if you currently serve in any AHLA leadership role, we are unable to consider you for this opportunity for FY20.
