The Alliance is governed by a system of organizational checks and balances. We have an elected corporate Board of Directors over the 501(c)6 organization, Elected Officers and a Chapter Delegate Board to lead the National Membership Program, and a Corporate Advisory Board to provide industry insight. Additionally, we are proud to employ a staff dedicated to the management of the organization.
This structure is unlike any LGBTQ+ organization in the industry.

The organization was conceptualized by and created at the direction of a 53-person Steering Committee, led by an 11-person Executive Board headed by Chairperson Ryan Weyandt. Ryan was nominated and elected to this role by the members of the Steering Committee.
Together, these volunteers combined their passion, knowledge and expertise to guide the development of critical assets including bylaws, mission + vision statements, a website, naming, branding, and chapter development.
We also greatly appreciate the financial support of our Founding Contributors who helped fund the establishment of our organization. Without these individuals, our organization would not be where it is today.
