ALA and the Value of Partnership

Jump to "ALA" Carte Sponsorship Options

The Association of Legal Administrators is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1971 with its headquarters located in Lincolnshire, Illinois. Its membership has grown steadily over the years and has nearly 9,000 members worldwide, representing more than 30 countries. The local Jacksonville Chapter was chartered March 8, 1976 and has 45 members. These members are involved in the decision-making and management of law firms, corporate legal departments and government legal agencies. When evaluating needs for goods and services, we encourage our members to consider companies that have developed a relationship with our Chapter. That is typically established through sponsorships in our Business Partners’ program.

Listed below are a few of the many reasons we value our Business Partner relationships:

  • One of our primary missions is to educate our members to the highest standards, which is made possible, in large part, through your sponsorship dollars.

  • Chapter members depend upon contacts within the business community who will share their expertise about their products and services, helping them stay in the forefront of the latest technology.

  • Experience and trust grow from consistent and repeated contact with our Business Partners, which allow administrators to rely on resources outside their firms.

  • Trusting in our Business Partner relationships enhances the administrator’s credibility and improves the quality of management within the legal service organization.

  • Those who provide our external business services are always our first choice in seeking sponsorships.

We hope you will find this 2020 Sponsorship Opportunities Guide useful when planning your future involvement with JAX-ALA. Thank you for your support in assisting us to achieve our mission. We value your expertise, participation, and commitment. Thank you for making this partnership a success!
