Steering Committee

CLEL is governed by a Steering Committee which serves to make decisions and advise on projects. 

Steering Committee members are appointed by the membership and serve for three years.

Here is a link to the CLEL Bylaws, updated 11/30/2020.

Vote for the 2022 CLEL Steering Committee 

New CLEL Steering Committee Members are elected by the membership. All CLEL members should expect an email with the Steering Committee candidates as well as the proposed changes to the Bylaws. Please vote by December 5.
