The ALU's mission is to

  • provide high-quality information about Lisp
  • organize the International Lisp Conference

The ALU is managed by an elected Board of Directors and appointed officers. They can be reached by email sent to alu-board-only at alu.org.

The ALU is run according to the By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation.
