RAVES: Recognizing AHLA Volunteer Engagement and Success
Read the list of leaders, authors, speakers, and others who contributed to AHLA in 2016-2017

Each month, AHLA recognizes members who have provided service to the Association in a variety of ways. Check in frequently.
 

"I was there the night NHLA was founded in Atlanta. As we ate that buffet dinner and drank from the open bar electing George Barrett and Jamie Clements as our co-Chairpersons, it was noted that most legal organizations were run by a closed clique. Everyone agreed that this new organization should be open to all with speakers, officers, directors, and Board members available to volunteers.

Today, I got Connections magazine and saw the list of volunteers writing, speaking, organizing, and leading the Association.  Next to the list was a column listing ways for any member to become involved.  Today I also applied for a new job.  As I submitted my resume, I noticed how it was ‘beefed up’ with leadership, writing, speaking, and other AHLA activities.

AHLA is available for whatever opportunities you want to utilize to express yourself professionally and, in so doing, to strengthen your resume and make Connections (with a capital and small c).”
