ALM is a non-profit 501c6 trade association serving the textile care industry. ALM members are laundry processors; management firms providing leadership and/or management services in laundry plants; or healthcare facilities, linen management teams, allied trades vendors, and textile consumers.
All members have a voice in the organization's governance with the right to vote, hold/appointment to office, serve on volunteer committees or task forces, and give presentations. Members may also choose to participate in a local/regional chapter, but are not required to do so.
ALM's annual meeting is held in conjunction with ALM’s IMPACT Conference in the spring of even years or with CLEAN in the summer of odd years.
