Networking

Networking is a valued component of membership.  Chapter members regularly contact each other for solutions to day to day problems or for informal discussions regarding other important issues relating to our industry.

Continuing Education

Membership also offers a number of learning opportunities, through our monthly meetings, mini-seminars and retreats.   Current topics in legal management are covered such as employee and benefit management, expense control, ethics, technology advancement, and changes in law, just to name a few.  Some meetings are spent in information round-table discussions on key issues, giving members the opportunity to share ideas and concern relative to our area.  An annual Managing Partner Luncheon or Breakfast is held to express WALA’s appreciation to the legal profession and to provide a venue to acquaint partners and managers with our local organization.

Community Involvement

WALA strives to make contributions to the local legal community and to our city and state.  Chapter members can volunteer as Regional Officers and on nominating and conference committees as well as a variety of other roles, all of which add to the members’ growth and opportunities.

Salary Survey

WALA conducts an annual Compensation and Benefits Survey covering support staff and associate attorneys.  Results are compiled by an outside source and distributed at a nominal charge to member firms.  Non-member firms are charged a slightly higher fee.  ALA conducts a salary survey annually, as well.

Chapter Leadership

We have been fortunate to be consistently served by capable and creative Officers and Committee Chairs.  Members are encouraged to serve on one or more chapter committees to enhance their membership experience.
