Membership of the Lake Area Foundation (LAF) shall consist of five member advisory committees from each of the 10 counties in the Lake Cumberland region, along with all members of the Board of Directors.

The Lake Area Foundation Board of Directors is comprised of individuals from various professions and all walks of life. They represent the LAF region, which includes Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor and Wayne counties.

The LAF Board of Directors are volunteers. They receive no financial compensation for their service on the Board. They are selected to represent a broad cross-section of the LAF communities. They are eligible to serve three-year terms for no more than six years consecutively, and then they must leave the Board. This structure ensures that the Lake Area Foundation truly serves the people within the region. If you are interested in serving on the LAF Board, please contact us. We keep a list of potential board members for consideration.
