“At a time of specialization, when most are focusing more and more on less and less, legal administrators need to learn more and more about … more and more. From changes in ethics, HR regulations, drugs in the workplace, greening of the office, mobile lawyers and e-billing, ALA provides the structure and resources for me to learn, share and teach.”

“As a 20-year member of ALA, I can honestly say ALA was my lifeline as the firm I am with grew from a very small 10-person firm to the current 85-person firm. When I was new to the job, people and printed resources were much needed. Not only the members of my chapter were called upon, but from ALA’s conferences I was also able to network with the smaller firms that met my needs at that time. As the firm grew, so did my need for new information, particularly as we passed some magic numbers for state and federal benefits. ALA members came to my rescue. Even though I have six department heads and an office manager that now report to me and are responsible for some of the day-to-day people issues, I still rely on ALA to meet my needs for information. It is the first source I turn to.”

“All 10 of the ALA Annual Conferences that I have attended presented me with opportunities to learn new skills, to see the latest trends and gadgets in the legal market, to meet new friends and to rekindle old relationships. This year, I decided to give a little bit back to ALA by volunteering to introduce one of their wonderful educational session speakers to the ALA attendees. It felt great to be more than just a participant this year (even if it meant working outside my comfort zone) and to actually play a very tiny part in the ALA Annual Conference experience. I would encourage everyone to walk the walk and talk the talk by volunteering and earning a Session Manager ribbon!”
