On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Greater Chicago Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators, I am excited to welcome you to another great year of timely and relevant educational programming and valuable networking. We are well on our way planning for 2019, and we strive to deliver the value you expect and deserve from your ALA membership.
By renewing your ALA and Greater Chicago Chapter memberships, you have powerfully committed to your personal and professional growth and to the success of your firm through your leadership. There is no better resource available to keep you up to date and at the forefront of the legal landscape than ALA - the education and connections that come as a result of being an engaged member of our Chapter are invaluable and we hope you will take advantage of everything we have to offer!
This is your Chapter - we want to hear from you! Please reach out to me or to any member of the Board. Visit the Leadership page and share your feedback, concerns, and suggestions with any of us.
Did you know that volunteering leads to greater rewards as a Chapter member? Working on a committee is a great way to get involved, make new connections, and reap the benefits of enhanced participation. Our committee chairs are always looking for help and we have plenty of micro volunteer opportunities available, making it easier to fit into busy schedules. Interested in learning more? Visit the Chapter Committees page.
We have added administrative support to assist our Board, volunteers, members and Business Partners so you can achieve the greatest value from your chapter membership. Please do not hesitate to contact our administrative team should you need assistance in any way.
Our 2019-2020 Board year holds great promise and I am honored to serve as the President of our organization this year and to have the privilege of working with a group of dedicated and committed Board members. Together, we will serve you and continue the legacy of the Greater Chicago Chapter.
