ALA AND THE VALUE OF PARTNERSHIP 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 10, 000 members worldwide, representing 30 countries. The local Jacksonville Chapter was chartered in 1976 and has 44 members. These members are involved in the decision making and management of law firms and government agencies. When evaluating their needs for goods and services, our members are encouraged to consider companies which have developed a relationship with our Chapter, which typically is established through sponsorships in our Business Partners’ program. Listed below are just 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 Business Partner relationships give the administrator enhanced credibility and improved quality of management within legal service organizations. Those who provide our external business services are always our first choice in seeking sponsorships. We hope you will find this 2016 Sponsorship Opportunities Guide useful when planning your future involvement with JAX-ALA. Thank you for your support in helping us achieve our mission. We value your expertise, participation and commitment. Thank you for making this partnership a success!
