Dear Prospective Member:

The Board of Directors of the Mile High Chapter, ALA extends a heartfelt invitation to you to join the National Association of Legal Administrators ("ALA") and the Mile High Chapter ("MHC"). We think you will find your membership to be very rewarding. The MHC provides numerous educational and networking opportunities as well as assisting you in better meeting the everyday challenges of your profession. Criteria for local chapter membership includes current membership in our National Association in addition to those criteria listed in our chapter bylaws.

Mile High Chapter membership includes the following benefits:

  1. Peer Group - The MHC is an organization of almost 200 administrators and functional specialists that functions as a peer group. We are interested in your success.
  2. Monthly Educational Luncheons - The MHC holds monthly luncheons that focus on the knowledge, skills and abilities of legal administrators and functional specialists in the areas of: financial management, human resources management, organizational development, business management/legal industry, operations management, communication and self-management. The MHC is a CLM (Certified Legal Manager) Approved Provider and seeks application and re-certification credits, SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP re-certification credits and has met the criteria to offer HRCI re-certification credits for our monthly luncheons.

    1. Law Firm Management Luncheon - As a “thank you” to the attorneys at our law firms and legal departments who support our ALA membership, the chapter holds an annual educational luncheon where CLE credit is applied for and paying MHC members may bring an attorney from their office free of charge.
  3. ListServ - The MHC listserv is an invaluable resource when you've got a troubling question that you would like some help on from your fellow administrators, when you want to advertise that you need to fill a staff position, when your Executive Committee wants a quick answer to a question that is beyond your scope, or any number of other things that we administrators address each day. All members must abide by listserv related rules and antitrust guidelines.

  4. Subgroup Meetings - Subgroups of the MHC meet on an as-needed basis to discuss topics of interest. Currently, there are active subgroups for human resources and intellectual property.

The Conference offers educational sessions with re-certification credits and the Business Partner Expo provides our members opportunities to engage with our MHC Business Partners. Members can network with each other and our business partners in a relaxing setting. The cost of this event is heavily subsidized by the MHC.

It is the best survey available for legal managers, paralegals, and legal support staff in the Denver metro area legal community. While available to others, the price is reduced to members and further reduced for members who participate in the survey.
