2016 President's Award of Excellence

 

 

Welcome to KCALA!

Welcome to our team and website!  Whether you’re a new Legal Administrator in the Kansas City area, or already a member of our group, we would like to introduce you to the advantages of your membership in our association.  KCALA began in 1975 with an enterprising group of Legal Administrators looking for a way to advance their core knowledge in managing their respective law firms.  Their early efforts have been the foundation on which our association stands today in promoting and enhancing the competence and professionalism of all members of the legal management team. 

Membership has its advantages!  By joining the KCALA and the National Association of Legal Administrators (ALA), you will enjoy a wide arrange of benefits to assist you in your daily law firm duties.  Log into the ALA website (alanet.org), and click on the “Become a Member Tab,” to get a preview of all programs available to you.  From Educational Opportunities to the Legal Management Resource Center (LMRC), this site is fully stocked with the tools to make you successful.

KCALA supports the ALA Diversity Initiative to increase awareness of and sensitivity to the differences among our workforce and to advance the concepts of inclusiveness and acceptance. ALA’s goal is to increase diversity and inclusion in the Association, in the legal management community and in all legal service organizations. KCALA recognizes that recruiting, retaining, and promoting diverse employees are critical to an organization’s success. We urge our members to utilize the resources that are available on the ALA’s diversity webpage http://www.alanet.org/about/diversity.
