How we work

The ALBA Network Leadership is called the ALBA Team. The ALBA Team is led by the Board of Directors and divided into working groups composed of scientists involved in research, education, communication and advocacy. The coordination of each topic is supported by a working group which is chaired by the relevant Director. Working groups consist of ALBA Advisors, Ambassadors and Volunteers. The full list of current ALBA working groups can be found here.
