Los Angeles Legal Secretaries Association

President’s Message

Dear LALSA Members and Friends,

Greetings and welcome to our new and returning members!  I hope this President’s Message finds you safe and well!

It is a new year and new beginnings.  Many of us have made resolutions for the new year.  We resolve to take better care of ourselves, exercise regularly, read more books, and possibly watch less television.  Along with the foregoing resolutions, I recommend that the members of the Los Angeles Legal Secretaries Association (“Association” or “LALSA”) become more involved with our Association.  LALSA will benefit from new ideas, support, and enthusiasm. 

I encourage new and long-time members of LALSA to run for office.  Serving on the Board is beneficial, rewarding and satisfying.  The annual election of the Board of Directors usually occurs during the month of March.  We did not hold elections last year due to COVID.  It likely will not happen this year for the same reason.  Having said that, the following are the LALSA elected positions:

  1. President
  2. First Vice President – Membership
  3. Second Vice President – Programs (Open)
  4. Recording Secretary
  5. Treasurer
  6. Governor (Open)

Please note that little time is required to serve on the Board, just a few hours each month.  If you are not ready for an elected position, you might be interested in a chairmanship position.  LALSA has those too!  Please give it some thought and when you feel ready to take that step, please feel free to reach out to me or any of the current Board members.  We would love to welcome you to the team!

Meanwhile, please visit the Legal Professionals Inc. website at https://www.legalprofessionalsinc.org/ to learn about virtual opportunities and training offered to our LALSA members.  Remember, being a member has benefits.

ZOOM Meeting – What’s New in the Los Angeles Superior Court? will be on Tuesday, February 16 at 7 p.m.  Join us for our first meeting of the year.  See Notice of Meeting in our Calendar section for details.

Until we meet again, please stay safe and well.  Remember to be kind to your mind.
