As a member of ALA’s Annual Conference Planning Committee for 2024, I am eager to be in Aurora, CO for the annual conference. This year’s speaker lineup has been carefully curated to walk attendees through an immersive, educational experience offering insight into areas of critical importance currently emerging in the legal industry. Additionally, the opportunity to meet and network with other like-minded members of ALA from around the world continues to move me. The reason for this is that no other membership organization in my career has held a candle to the passion and connection ALA members embody for this organization and each other.
