Leadership & Staff

Leadership

Sound Alliance has various leadership structures that help guide our direction.  These include:

  • Delegate Assembly - consisting of voting delegates from each member institution, setting the direction for Sound Alliance's work

  • Strategy Team - an active committee of the Delegate Assembly, providing leadership and guidance between gatherings

  • Research Action Teams- guide our issue work.  These civic leaders do all the work of researching an issue with experts in the field, and then focusing, planning, and executing a concrete and winnable campaign.  Check out our campaigns page for more information about our current work.

  • The Board of Directors has financial and legal responsibility for the organization.

Get in touch if you are interested in getting involved with any of these leadership teams for Sound Alliance.
