Our mission is to create a stronger media industry through diversity initiatives that deepen the scope, coverage and understanding of the Latino community. We consistently seek fair and balanced coverage on issues and topics of importance to the Latino community.

There are several seats on the ALMA Board that will be open for election/re-election this year and we are seeking candidates to fill them. Board membership is voluntary, but we hold an election when it is necessary to fill open seats. Current board members may seek re-election.

It's necessary for board candidates to be paid members of ALMA. The annual cost of ALMA membership is $25. However, you can also become an ALMA member if you become a paid member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, which costs $35 annually. Just select ALMA as your professional chapter.  

ALMA is an organization made up of working journalists and media/public relations professionals. We support diversity in the media industry. We plan and host events for young, aspiring journalists, including the annual ALMA High School Journalism Workshop. We also provide scholarships for students studying journalism at Arizona State University and local colleges. In addition, ALMA is an affiliate of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.

The ALMA Board is instrumental in planning, hosting, and executing the organization’s programs.

If you are interesting in being considered for a seat on ALMA’s board, please write a short statement that introduces who you are and what you do professionally, your interest in being on the ALMA board, what you would bring to the organization, and what you hope to accomplish as a board member. The deadline to submit your statement is Nov. 22. For more information or to send your statement, contact gnevarez2011@gmail.com.
