What's Happening: Calendar Of Events


We've been busy the past two months!  Eight members of our chapter attended the annual conference in Toronto for a week of seminars, exhibit hall events, evening get-togethers, evaluating good speakers (for our 2015 local programming) and attending a concert by REO Speedwagon.  Our chapter was awarded the highest honor of Platinum for our 2014 efforts thanks to the leadership of Ann Caudle, DJ Geiger won the Quest Award, and Kathy Scourby won a front row seat (and photo op with the band: Photograph by Andrew Tolson, Reprinted with permission by the Association of Legal Administrators,


We also conducted our yearly Business Partner Meet & Greet in early June.  The members of the Richmond ALA Board hosted a luncheon for our BPs to talk about all the activities and initiatives going on with our chapter, and exchanged ideas on how to make the sponsorship packages even better as we start to think about 2015.

This is an exciting time with ALA.  Did you know that the ALA organization AND our chapter has a (new) mission statement?  This is in the ABOUT US section of the website, but here it is:

ALAALA is the undisputed leader for the business of law, focused on the delivery of cutting-edge management and leadership products and services to the global legal community.  We identify and provide solutions to the most strategic and operational challenges our members and customers face today, while we prepare them for the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow.

Richmond ALAOur mission is to provide relevant educational programs, networking opportunities and social activities in a fun and welcoming environment to those in the field of legal management, while fostering relationships with our business partners and giving back to our community.

Some of your board members and committee chairs will be attending the annual ALA Chapter Leadership Institute in mid-July, and we are already planning for fall events, conferences and community service projects.  Be sure to read the monthly update e-mail and the website for upcoming announcements!

Jill Shugart, President Richmond ALA
