Stephen Wolf, CLM, CPA, Chief Operating Officer, Deutsch Kerrigan LLP, New Orleans Chapter, Member Since 2002

Attending the ALA Annual Conference was the best thing that I could have done for my firm and my own professional career. I sent my executive staff and the partners copies of the outlines for the sessions that I was attending to show value for attending the conference. Partners were already reviewing outlines when I returned on Monday. They agreed that the material was top notch and reaffirms their value in ALA.
