The VPs share with the President and the Executive Director responsibility for the annual convention. With the assistance of the Vice Presidents, and the advice of the Board, the President and the Executive Director plan the annual convention.
The Second Vice President is also responsible for negotiating an agreement with a higher education hosting institution for the NeMLA conference that will take place on the year they will be the acting President. A new Second Vice President is elected every year to the NeMLA Board.

The Directors represent the interests of the membership as a whole as well as of their particular Area constituency.
