President's Message

Organizations exist to serve. Period. Leaders live to serve. Period.   Tom Peters

Welcome to KCALA! Our purpose is to serve you and your legal organization. KCALA provides educational and networking opportunities to help you become a better leader and provide solutions to you as a legal management professional. I look forward to serving you in the coming year with enthusiasm and excitement! I am committed to my vision of Lead. Learn. Inspire. In the past five years of being an ALA member, I have thoroughly enjoyed every opportunity to meet other leaders in the legal industry and learn from their knowledge and experiences which has ultimately inspired me to lead others.

There are many benefits to your ALA membership. Our website provides information on all of our upcoming events that provide both educational and networking opportunities. Whether it is a speaker at a chapter meeting or webinar, attending a focus group or networking event with business partners and colleagues, you will have many opportunities to gain valuable knowledge and develop strategies to help you become a better leader.

John Quincy Adams said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” If you are successful in inspiring your subordinates, colleagues, and loved ones you can overcome any challenges. I am committed to becoming a better leader and my hope is that you are inspired to do the same. I challenge you to dream more…what would you attempt if failure wasn’t an option? I challenge you to learn more…what skills and education do you hope to achieve? I challenge you to do more…get involved with our chapter and take advantage of the benefits of your membership. I promise you, if you dream more, learn more and do more, you will become more.
