    Pros

    Excellent leadership that allows room for flexibility all the way down, space for defining your own work, nonprofit committed to its cause

    Cons

    Almost like 2 organizations in one: fundraising and programs work separately with little overlap. Programs sometimes treated as afterthought at regional level.

    Advice to Management

    Projects from the top sometimes come and go without much explanation. Strengths are not shared across charters or in all states.

Many Americans breathe easier because of the American Lung Association. Dedicated to the prevention and cure of lung disease, the group focuses on asthma management, air quality, and tobacco control.
