In addition to its Annual and Mid-Year Meetings, ACLEA serves its members in several important ways. All members are encouraged to suggest improvements in these services or additional services by contacting the Executive Director, The Member Services Committee Co-Chairs, or any member of the Executive Committee.
Twice each year, ACLEA sponsors educational meetings for members. The Annual Meeting is held in July/August and the Mid-Year Meeting in January/February each year. The three-day meetings focus on every aspect of CLE planning, production, economics, publications and marketing. In addition, new members have special orientation and educational programming. The ACLEA Executive Committee deliberates at each meeting and a business meeting for all members addresses organizational issues.
Information on all educational opportunities, including downloadable brochures and on-line registration is available here.
Meetings are held in attractive locations such as San Francisco, Scottsdale, San Diego, New Orleans, Hawaii, Boston, and Vancouver. They offer great opportunities to network with your peers. Comprehensive course materials are a part of every meeting.
If your operation is new or facing a particularly challenging situation, consult with an ACLEA member by phone, in person, via e-mail, or post your questions on the listserv. For a more extensive review of your operation, you can request an onsite audit by one or more senior ACLEA members. Don't hesitate to take advantage of professional guidance from your colleagues!
In the Loop, published quarterly, is packed with articles on cutting-edge topics such as technology-delivered CLE, trends in MCLE regulations, all aspects of publishing-both printed and electronic, techniques for improving customer relations, marketing and product development, customer research, office technology and management, strategic planning, and information about what's working and not working in similar jurisdictions.
The @CLEA News is a free e-mail update provided as a service to all ACLEA members.
