The League of Professional System Administrators (LOPSA) is a non-profit organization. The organization's mission is "to advance the practice of system administration; to support, recognize, educate, and encourage its practitioners; and to serve the public through education and outreach on system administration issues".
The corporation was created as "The System Administrators Guild, Inc." in July 2004 by volunteers of the USENIX Association as part of a plan to spin off its SAGE Special Technical Group into a separate organization. After the spin-off from USENIX Association was halted in November 2005, the volunteers involved in the spin-off opted to move forward as a new organization which was renamed LOPSA, and began reorganizing itself into an independent entity.
LOPSA is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors; the first board was elected in July 2005 by the membership of SAGE. Elections for new Board members are held every two years, in June. Its headquarters are in Mount Laurel, New Jersey.
