About

Membership has its privileges. With a list this long, it’s no wonder so many legal organizations encourage membership in WMALA and ALA as a way of helping their administrators continue to develop their professional capabilities. But there are additional resources for you through WMALA!

Monthly meetings and focused seminars on special topics offer you the opportunity to learn from vendors and experts in the legal field as well as from your peers. WMALA also provides member scholarships to regional and national conferences.
Members of WMALA are generous with their time and advice. You can benefit from their knowledge in special areas, and share your own expertise with others. Membership in committees and special interest groups lets you focus on your specific information needs.
Through local, regional and national networking, you can learn about trends in the industry, helping you prepare for change and adapt to technological and managerial advances within the legal profession. ALA is an invaluable resource in this area too!
