Elizabeth Locke's Presidents Message

    Elizabeth Locke

    They say that the second time around is a charm.  As President I will do my best to lead the Jacksonville Chapter into the future.  Our national association has a new vision and we anticipate adapting and changing with them in the upcoming year. We have many exciting events planned for you.  It is our hope that you will take advantage of these events and learn a little from each; whether it is how to be a better legal manager or gain insight on a new product from one of our business partners.  Each of our events is there to enhance your growth as a leader and as an administrator. 

    I hope you are able to attend the annual conference held in Nashville, May 2015.  It’s a great place to network with Regional and National ALA members while enjoying the country music atmosphere.  If you've never been to Nashville, you really need to visit the Grand Old Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame, watch a Predator hockey game, Parthenon, Ryman auditorium, a football game by the Tennessee Titans or the Hermitage, just to name a few.

    This year there are three opportunities for the Business of Law conferences.  Each of the conferences is produced in the same format, just different locations and dates to accommodate busy calendars.  The locations are New Orleans, Atlanta and Las Vegas.  I hope you have an opportunity to take advantage of one of these conferences. 

    Our chapter’s calendar is full of events and I hope to see each one of you throughout the year. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact me or any board member. I look forward to an amazing new year.
