President's Report

Unprecedented Times
By: Bridget Lueck, President

Greetings!  I am writing my first column as President to you from my kitchen table.  These are unprecedented times and we are in uncharted territory.  Just know that we are all in this together. ALA has prepared a webpage with a wealth of information.  Please take a moment to check it out.  Your Board is here to help so feel free to contact any of us. 

Stay safe and healthy!

VP of Education's Report

Upcoming Meetings
By: Holly Coyle, VP of Education

During these uncertain times, we want to keep our WALA members and Business Partners health and safety as our number one priority.  The State Bar of Wisconsin has postponed its Annual Meeting and Convention on June 11-12, 2020. This means that WALA’s ACE is also postponed until 2021. WALA will continue to partner with its Business Partners and the State Bar of Wisconsin for future social and educational events.  Hopefully, in the next few months, we will be able to get together to share some smiles and laughter, to get beyond this. 

Please take care and stay healthy.
