Formerly NAILM, the Association for Linen Management (ALM) was founded in 1939 by Heywood Wiley to provide a network for the flow of information among its members leading toward their professional development and the advancement of the technologies they employ.

ALM accomplishes this purpose through the exchange of information, recognition and achievement and formal educational activities. ALM is a non-profit professional organization. It is not a union, and has no collective bargaining or lobbying functions. All of the association's elected and appointed officials serve without compensation. ALM has Chapters assigned by geographic location.
