MILE HIGH CHAPTER KUDOS!

MILE HIGH CHAPTER JOB POSTINGS

Our Chapter website has a Job Postings section at no cost that is not currently being well utilized.  As you have positions come open in your firms, you can fill out a short form and cut and paste your job ad for all to see.  When the jobs are filled, you contact [email protected] or [email protected] and ask them to remove it.  Take a look! https://milehighala.com/classifieds.php

Denver Legal Social Event – another success

The Mile High Chapter ALA partnered with several other legal organizations in Denver for a social and happy hour on January 23rd at Hogan Lovells, and it was quite a success!  We had over 100 members of various legal organizations present, and proceeds from the event were for the benefit of The Gathering Place.   Organizations included ILTA, RMPA, Women in E-Discovery and the National Federation of Paralegal Association.  Thank you to Missy Hirst and the Strategic Relations Committee for coordinating on behalf of the Chapter.
