The AILG is led by alum volunteers: more than 60 alums volunteer annually for the AILG, and more than 250 alums volunteer as corporation or advisory board members, officer mentors, chapter and risk management advisors, facility managers, and in other roles.

AILG plenary meetings are held four times a year, with representatives from member organizations, alumni, students, and MIT staff in attendance. An annual meeting is held in the spring, and the elected Board and Ombudspersons meet monthly. Current AILG committees are: Accreditation, Community Relations, Educations, Faclilities, Finance, Informations Technology, Insurance, Parent Outreach, and West Campus Village Initiative.

New volunteers are welcome! Please check the Volunteering, Calendar or Committees pages for more information.
