Call for Volunteers


Apply to serve as the 2023 Annual Conference & Expo Planning Committee Chair

ALA is currently accepting applications from individuals interested in serving as the 2023 Annual Conference & Expo  Planning Committee Chair.

The Annual Conference & Expo Planning Committee (ACC) is comprised of one representative from each of the following committees (identified as historically having natural involvement with planning necessities):

The Board of Directors may also include the perspective of the NextGen/First Five community (individuals with five or fewer years in the legal management profession) if not already represented in the above. Current members of the committee are ineligible to serve as the 2023 Annual Conference & Expo Planning Committee Chair.

The ACC will work with ACI (our third-party conference vendor) and ALA staff to advise on the educational content and member experience for this premier event, as well as provide perspectives on potential marketing efforts. This diverse committee will be representative of the thought leadership in the Association.

The ACC Chair will be selected from the overall membership, excluding anyone serving as a representative of a committee. This selection will help to eliminate any biases, or perceived biases, toward a committee as well as provide an additional leadership opportunity to volunteers who may be interested. Ideal applicants for service as the chair of this committee will possess the following characteristics:

  • Highly engaged in the Association at any level
  • Have attended at least one previous Annual Conference & Expo
  • Diverse perspectives and industry experiences
  • Insight into trends and challenges in the legal industry on both macro and micro levels
  • Ability to be objective
  • Responsive and collaborative communication skills

Individuals interested in serving in this important role should submit their application by March 4, 2022. (Individuals that already have a volunteer application on file with ALA should review their information to ensure it is up to date.) Questions regarding this opportunity should be directed to [email protected].
