Begin a LLEAD Chapter

LLEAD chapters are established with the assistance of the State LLEAD board of Directors. They follow bylaws established and approved by the LLEAD State Board.  They can be reviewed here. Please contact Alberto Flores with your interest to organize community members into a chapter.
