Join ACLEA to network in the friendliest city of 2016!

Every year Travel + Leisure conducts a survey asking people to rate their perceptions as visitors to 38 metro areas.  The survey asks respondents to offer their opinions on the local style, cultural attractions, dining experiences, and overall friendliness.  The scores are then ranked and a winner is selected.

And the friendliest city in 2016 is….NASHVILLE!!! 

Visitors said they loved the music, food, and welcoming atmosphere of this fine city.  And our lucky ACLEA members will be able to experience all of this for themselves, along with locals who are eager to share their home with us.  The 53rd mid-year meeting will be held at the Loew’s Vanderbilt Hotel, January 28-31, 2017.

Networking galore!

The best thing about coming to an ACLEA conference is catching up with old friends and making new ones.  And Nashville will be just the place for you to accomplish all of that, along with bringing innovative and proven initiatives back to your shop.  We’ll be bringing you sessions with a deep dive into data, marketing, hiring, and entrepreneurship. 

And with the networking opportunities, you are bound to have a good time.  Receptions, fitness, karaoke, and the closing Honky Tonk Dinner where ACLEA will take over the Tin Roof on Broadway for dinner, dancing, and live music! The Tin Roof on Broadway opened in 2014 in the former Hatch Show Print Building nestled among Nashville’s legendary Honky Tonks. Over the years, their stages have hosted the famous, the should-have-been famous, and everyone in between.

So don’t miss a chance to enjoy good food, good music, and good times at ACLEA’s Mid-Year Meeting!

Welcome to the ACLEA Blog!

Posted By Alexandra Wong, Law Society of Ontario, Friday, April 15, 2016

As I compose this first ACLEA blog entry, I’m reminded of several reasons why I value my membership with ACLEA, but one sticks out in my mind right away.  ACLEA members have fantastic ideas and content and are willing to share information with other members.  They are a great resource network for relevant and timely information in the CLE industry.

 

For instance, Susan Munro, CLEBC, recently wrote an article, “Helping New Lawyers Become Practice-Ready” which was published in Slaw.ca on March 16, 2016. This article is extremely relevant to all ACLEA members. As CLE professionals, we’re faced with the task of trying to bridge the gap between the completion of law school and the start of professional practice. 

 

At our past conferences in San Diego and Savannah, we heard the same challenge from Frank Wu, Distinguished Professor of Law, University of California, Hastings College of Law and from Professor Patrick Longan, Mercer University, School of Law, respectively. The stats from Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers, a national initiative to align legal education with the needs of an evolving profession, demonstrate this as well.

 

This is just an example of relevant issues that our members make note of in different forums outside of ACLEA that affect CLE professionals.

 

Another way ACLEA is great at sharing info or asking questions is via our listservs. There are listservs that are open to all ACLEA members: general discussion, executive leadership, international, marketing, publications, technology and programming. There are also listservs specific to organizational SIGs: entrepreneurial, in-house, law schools, local and speciality bars, nationals, regulators, and state and provincial bars. The listservs promote the exchange of information among ACLEA members on matters relating to CLE and ACLEA.

 

In-person networking opportunities at the ACLEA Mid-Year and Annual Conferences are another great way to share information.   Here are some photos from recent conferences.

We hope that this blog acts as an additional avenue in the sharing of information among members and welcome contributions from all ACLEA members.
