One of the things that makes Lebanon great is its diversity and we pride ourselves at the American Lebanese Cultural Center on maintaining that diverse makeup in our Board of Directors. 

The American Lebanese Cultural Center (ALCC) is a nonprofit social and cultural group located in Houston, Texas, USA that has no religious or political leanings and we have no affiliation other than a deep and genuine love for Lebanon. Our goal is to bring together the community by hosting quality programs and events as we promote appreciation and understanding of Lebanese culture and heritage. The ALCC was founded in February 2014 and since then we have obtained local, national, and international recognition.

The Board of Directors oversees the daily activities and affairs of the ALCC and no Director is paid for their time as it is strictly a volunteer effort.
