Getting Involved

Los Altos Institute is an organization whose leadership comprises three groups of active members: (1) a board of directors, dealing with both long-term policy and administration of the institute, (2) an academic board associated with the journal that will help to review submissions and ensure that they meet standards of rigorous engagement with both evidence and current scholarship, (3) a group of fellows, supported in their research by the academic board. Fellows are currently unremunerated but will receive Institute resources to assist with their research.

We are organized into two chapters, our main chapter based in Vancouver, BC and our South Fraser chapter based in Surrey. It is through our chapters the we organize public events, salons and our reading groups. If you are interested in getting active in either, contact Stuart Parker (; and if you would like to start your own local LAI chapter, please write to our main mailbox (
