Sweet Home Chicago – Back from the Atlanta ALA!
Now that we’re getting settled back in the office, we finally have time to reflect back on the fantastic trip to Atlanta, GA for the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) Region 2 Conference. The conference couldn’t have gone better; the weather was gorgeous, the accommodations were luxurious, and the sessions were well attended.
The conference was held at the Loews Atlanta, which had a lovely rooftop deck and an elegant conference floor. With multiple sessions on communication, organization, and human resources, operations, and business management, there was plenty of knowledge to soak up! The conference keynote speaker, Craig Price, provided an informational and fun session on working with people with “Learning from All Sides.” The exhibit hall was buzzing with activity all throughout the morning, and there were plenty of opportunities to meet and talk with the folks who attended.
Tim Barker from Frost Brown Todd LLC won a $100 American Express gift card in our exhibit booth raffle. As usual, we had the opportunity to meet a lot of new people. We also enjoyed catching up with those who we hadn’t seen in awhile, too. This conference really provided a prime opportunity for networking and information sharing.
Follow Firefly to the next conference, NYSPPA, on October 12th, where you can meet our Ohio Manager, Phil Data. Jenn and I will be headed to Baltimore, MD for NARCA on October 18-19th, 2012.
