Shared Director Assignment

Shared Director Licenses:

Licensees who serve as directors for up to five (5) facilities must obtain a secondary (shared) license from the board so that they can display their license at each facility that they are the director. Within 15 days of assuming the position, the shared director or director in residence, must submit an application to serve as a shared director. The additional shared director license will indicate the facility the license was issued to. Those additional licenses are not transferable and are only valid for those additional locations. The fee is $125.00 for each additional location. Please submit the LALD Shared Director application on the license portal by submitting a new application as an ALD Secondary/Shared Director. This will need to be completed for each additional license.  A LALD shared Director agreement will also be required for those locations. 

Report a Change of Facility - Log in to your online portal and navigate to the Director of Record section of the Profile tab to add your additional locations.
