Welcome to the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) Long Island Chapter. The ALA is your leading resource for knowledge and networking in the legal industry. As an ALA member for many years, I have had the privilege of meeting and working with administrators from some of the best law firms on Long Island. Our membership continues to increase every year, which I believe is a testament to the intelligence, competence and personal warmth of our members. One of the most popular aspects of the ALA is the ability for members to network with each other as professionals engaged in the management of law in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
Our Chapter offers its members educational and networking opportunities during our monthly meetings and social events, as well as through our relationship with the national Association of Legal Administrators at its Conferences that are held in various cities throughout the year. Networking opportunities are paired with educational sessions for general legal management professionals and functional specialists alike, from human resources and finance to office management and business development. ALA conferences can help you solve the challenges that face your firm or office. National also has a wide range of topics that are available as webinars to our members.
ALA Long Island continues to be involved with the communities on Long Island with our Community Connection events that serve various charitable organizations across Nassau and Suffolk. These events provide great satisfaction to our members who are interested in volunteerism.
If you are interested in learning more about the Chapter, please contact our Membership Committee for more information. We look forward to meeting you at our next meeting!
