Board of Directors

In addition to the day to day leadership of Executive Director, Leslie Powell-Boudreaux, our volunteer Board of Directors plays an active role in designing services and developing policies to guide our program. Board members serve as ambassadors, educating the community and building relationships that support our mission. Our Board consists of 21 members - 13 are attorneys, 7 are client eligible and  1 is a CPA. Most of our attorneys are appointed by The Florida Bar based on recommendations from various local bar associations.

Federal regulations require that the Board consist of at least 60% attorneys, and 30% clients who are eligible for services at the time of appointment. Additional regulations require that attorney appointments be made by bar associations representing a majority of the attorneys practicing in the communities where LSNF provides services.
