What is ALA & Why Would You Want to Be a Business Partner?
The Association of Legal Administrators is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1971, with its headquarters located in Lincolnshire, Illinois. Its membership has grown steadily over the years and now has approximately 10,000 members from 30 countries world-wide. ALA is structured into six (6) regions with more than 100 chapters in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and New Zealand.
The local Indiana Chapter started in 1974 and currently has about 60 members from firms ranging in size from 1 to 500, governmental agencies and corporate legal departments. Our members represent every functional specialty within a law firm, Human Resources, Facilities, Finance and IT, as well as overall office management. These people are the decision makers and managers of over 50 law firms. When evaluating the need for goods and services, our members are encouraged to consider companies which have developed a relationship with our Chapter, which typically is established through our Business Partner program each year.
We have listed below some of the many reasons we value our Business Partner relationships:
One of our primary missions is to educate our members to the highest standards, which is made possible in large part through your sponsorship dollars.
Chapter members depend upon contacts within the business community who will share information about their products and services to help them stay educated in those areas.
Experience and trust grow from consistent and repeated contact with our Business Partners, which allow administrators to rely on resources outside their firms.
Trusting vendor relationships bring to the administrator enhanced credibility and improved quality or management within legal service organizations.
Business Partners who provide external services are our first choice in seeking service providers.
