The Colorado Language Arts Society is governed by an executive committee elected from the membership. Serving on the board requires a comparatively modest time commitment for the amount of impact you can have improving the teaching and learning of English/Language Arts.

If taking a leadership position with our organization supporting teaching and learning in Colorado interests you, read the description of elected board positions and nominate yourself or a colleague in January for the annual spring election. Terms begin in May.
