ALCM Regions

ALCM is divided into four geographic regions:

  • Region 1 (northeastern U.S. and eastern Canada)
  • Region 2 (southeastern U.S.)
  • Region 3 (central U.S. and Manitoba)
  • Region 4 (western U.S. and western Canada)

regional map shows the breakdown by state and province. (With apologies to the UP-ers; yes, we do know that the Upper Peninsula is part of Michigan. For some reason, this map does not include it.) Every two years in even-numbered years, ALCM hosts regional conferences.

Each region elects three regional officers who serve for a two-year term. Regional presidents serve on the ALCM board.
