Section Committees

The ALAMN Section Committees are forums of legal administrators that meet regularly to discuss topics related to their position or size of firm. Each group also has an e-list available in order to provide another avenue to communicate. If you are interested in participating in one of the groups you can contact the chair.

Small and Medium - Offers a dynamic environment for administrators of firms with fewer than 75 lawyers. An invaluable email distribution list provides members a platform for tapping the vast and varying experiences and vibrant intellect of administrators in similar firm settings. Additionally there are monthly meetings the third Thursday of the month at the Town and Country Club in St. Paul, Minnesota. These meetings offer myriad speakers presenting information on all areas of firm management including facilities, human resources, information technology, finance, and strategic planning. Last, but definitely not least, there are a plethora of opportunities for networking with administrators and business partners.  (Chairs: Jessica Johnson and Kim Pepera)

Large Firm - Provides a forum for principal administrators of law firms with 75 or more lawyers to discuss issues relevant to large firms. From time to time, the group invites guest speakers to present on areas of interest, sometimes in collaboration with other special interest groups. (Chair: Ann Rainhart)

Human Resources - Provides a forum for law firm administrators and human resources professionals to discuss various human resources and law firm management topics.  Meetings are held monthly over the lunch hour and are hosted by member law firms.  We strive to provide our members with valuable tools and resources for job enrichment and education.  We routinely invite ALAMN sponsors and other industry professionals to speak on topics such as current events, legal and legislative updates and leadership/management.  Our meetings are fun, informative and provide a great opportunity for networking and sharing of ideas with other ALAMN professionals. Committee members also benefit through an invaluable email distribution list.  This list is used to exchange information and ask questions of other Committee members. (Chairs: Sarah Duerscherl and Kim Hansen)

Technology for the Legal Professional - ALAMN is forming a new Section Committee to provide education and discussion opportunities around technology trends, hot topics and issues ALAMN members who make technology decisions or are looking to learn more about specific technology topics will find the group beneficial. The group is designed to meet the needs of any legal professional and is not limited to IT professionals.  Actually, non-IT professionals are encouraged to participate.  Six to eight opportunities throughout the year will cover various technology topics and education. We will also have a Listserv to communicate about upcoming meetings and to provide an option to ask technology related questions.  The group will replace the current IT SIG and will be open to members only with an option to have a guest attend with a member.  Join the Listserv today to stay updated on upcoming meetings and to provide feedback on topics. (Chair: Sarah Didrikson
