The CAL is governed by a six member Board of Trustees. The primary duties of the Board is to manage the assets of the CAL, provide support to it's member clubs, organize and support workshops and conferences, and conduct the daily business of the organization.

The CAL was originally formed to support California laryngectomee clubs and support groups. During the years its mission has evolved to encompass offering membership to all West Coast laryngectomee groups. Our workshops and conferences are open to anyone, but the locations and subject matter are geared toward providing the best possible service to laryngectomees and speech language pathologists on the West Coast ands it's neighboring states.
