Committees

Get involved in a fun, dynamic organization. Check out these Wisconsin ALA committee opportunities available to all members.

Bar Relations Committee

If you have participated in any committee on a national level, you will know how unique Wisconsin is to have the support from our state and local bar associations. This is another way to solidify the bond between attorneys and administrators in all aspects of legal management. Contact WALA's VP of Special Projects, Aly Lynch, at 608.335.4432 or via email.

Business Partner Relations Committee

Do you appreciate that you have free luncheons, free teleseminars, an award winning newsletter and national speakers at our annual conference? Well, we couldn't do it all without the support of our business partners. Once a year we seek monetary donations from our business partners and then partner with them at social events and our annual conference. Through our business partnering, we are able to offer several scholarships each year to local, regional and national conferences. This committee needs help recruiting new business partners, coordinating benefits and planning events. Contact WALA's President Elect-Elect/Co-VP of Business Partner Relations, Bridget M. Lueck at 262.951.4606 or via email.

Communications Committee

Even with today's advanced technology we struggle to keep everyone informed of WALA events and decisions made at a Board level. This position was created specifically with you, our members, in mind. The Communications Committee is responsible for the Membership Resource Guide (MRG), chapter events, WALA's award winning newsletter, Class Action (published quarterly) and the monthly Your Connection e-mail. This committee is always looking for members to write an article, proofread copy, assist with website updates, and maintenance of Constant Contact. Contact WALA's VP of Communications, Pamela M. Zacharias, at 414.273.1300 or via email.

Education Committee

The continued education of our members is a high priority for WALA's Board of Directors with luncheon meetings in both the Milwaukee and Madison area; free ALA teleseminars throughout the year; CLM study group meetings in both the Milwaukee and Madison areas; and our Annual Conference of Education (ACE) which brings national and local speakers to our members as well as a marketplace of legal products provided by WALA's Business Partners. Contact WALA's VP of Education, Jessica A. Beyer, at 262.798.8220 or via email

Membership Committee

The success of any association is its members, and we need to continually market our association to prospective members, get new members involved in our organization and retain our current members. This committee brings together a diverse group of managers from small, medium and large sized firms in order to meet the needs of our entire membership. Contact WALA's VP of Membership, Sandy Schmitt, at 414.271.1108 or via email.

Next Generation Emergining Leaders

WALA’s Next Generation Leadership Program is an effort to enhance the development of young management professionals in the legal industry. The program is seeking young professional participants to help WALA advance educational and networking outlets that will help young professionals maximize their WALA membership in addition to increasing diversity, competence, and professionalism in legal management. Contact WALA's VP of Education, Jessica A. Beyer, at 262.798.8220 or via email.

Special Projects Committee

Are you concerned about your community or have a cause you are passionate about? WALA is dedicated to helping our community. Maybe you just want to be involved in an event that happens once a year and you're done - the Managing Partner's Event is for you. Are you able to speak at schools, seminars and other events where WALA members are needed? And finally, if you're a social, out-going, fun-loving person, please help out with Social Events!
