Message from the President

You are the next star!  Tom Peters wrote that “Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders.”  Are you ready to lead?  The ALA Gateway Chapter is always looking for rising stars. We have an amazingly talented cast and we are looking for additional cast members for our ever-changing script. Please give Jeff Feltz, President-Elect, a call to discuss how you see your role. 

It’s hard to believe that Fall is almost upon us. We have many events and activities planned for September and October!

  • The Gateway Chapter and BAMSL Young Lawyer Division is offering a Business Skills Seminar for Attorneys CLE (5 credits) during the afternoon of September 12th at SLU Law School. Please get the word out to your less seasoned associates as this CLE will be extremely beneficial to them at a very low cost.
  • John Mozeliak will discuss "What sets you apart from others?" from a business perspective at the Grand Renaissance Hotel on September 17th. Be sure to bring your leaders to hear from the Senior Vice President and General Manger of our beloved St. Louis Cardinals.
  • Our Strategic Alliance event sponsored by Aramark and Cintas is on September 23rd at the Malt House Cellar (Moulin).  We have invited all of the other legal organizations in the St. Louis area to join us for a night of brews and blues.
  • We will finish the month by partnering with SPA on September 27th to build a ramp for the Paraquad organization.
  • Our annual Legal Forum and Marketplace will take place on October 30th.  Our theme is Driving Change for 2014 and Beyond.  You won't want to miss the extraordinary educational sessions and panels that have been planned.  This is also the biggest event for our business partners who support our chapter all year.

Your Executive Director,

Lisa Waligorski, CLM
Gateway ALA Chapter President, 2014-2015
