The Association


2022–2023 ALA President, Sarah L. Evenson, JD, MBA

Welcome to the Association of Legal Administrators, the premier professional association empowering our members to lead the business of law. In service to our more than 8,000 members worldwide, we provide extensive professional development, collaborative peer communities, strategic operational solutions and business partner connections.

As a member, ALA gives you access to solutions for the most critical strategic and operational challenges you face today, while preparing you for the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow. Throughout the pandemic, ALA has pivoted and found various ways to keep members connected both virtually and in-person. The last two years we have been able to have our Annual Conference & Expo on-site where networking and education has thrived. We have also continued to grow our online offerings, including rolling out a new platform for our Online Community; providing virtual member meetups, educational programming options and award-winning publications; and continuously updating career and diversity resources.

The Strategic Direction that we rolled out last year continues to drive us forward in how we deliver our products and services. With the help of our various committees, Board leadership and ALA staff, we will keep working to provide new solutions and resources to empower members to lead and be influencers in the business of law.

Not a member? Now is the perfect time to join! Begin investing in yourself, your future and your legal organization’s success. You can learn more about ALA by visiting the member benefits section of the website. If you would like to contact me directly about ALA, please do not hesitate to do so. I look forward to continuing the collaboration and connection as we move the Association and you, its biggest and brightest asset, forward.

I am excited for this opportunity to serve as your Association President and look forward to walking this journey with you.
