Message from the President

Hit your mark!  In June, Gateway Chapter representatives described the role of law office administrator to interns at the SLIP Law Institute.  Additionally, our Chapter hosted a Vino Van Gogh event at Joe Bucks.   The group enjoyed wine while painting the beautiful St. Louis skyline with sponsors Estlund & Associates and Aramark. 

Our Summer Reel Deal opened with an education session entitled Making the Business Case for Diversity. This session contained crucial information to develop and improve a diversity initiative.  Our members, business partners and members of the Recruiting Association of St. Louis (RASL) greatly appreciate the Diversity Awareness Partnership sharing their quality information with our group. 

Our second mini-series is packed with blockbuster education and alliance events! In July, our Summer Reel Deal continues with the Bill & Phil Show coming to the Moulin on the 16th.  The topic will be Agile, Mobile and Hostile:  The Secret to Winning with Technology. ILTA members will also be invited to this educational session.  The WLA breakfast will be on 22nd in an effort to collect donations for the Center for Women in Transition. 

The Gateway Chapter is hitting its mark in our education, visibility, community and alliance endeavors!  Have a great summer Gateway Chapter Members!  

Your Executive Director,
Lisa Waligorski, CLM
Gateway ALA Chapter President, 2014-2015
