President's Message

Lynda Matthews
Lynda Mathews, PSALA President

Last year, the Puget Sound Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators placed emphasis on two areas: Leadership Education and Technology. The result of this focus was an educational overhaul and restructuring, top-drawer educational offerings, and new on-line resources. This year, we will continue that work and infuse it with Professional Outreach and Diversity & Inclusion. Focusing on both of these areas will result in strong inter-organizational collaboration and measurable Diversity & Inclusion results.
