President's Message

The Puget Sound ALA is a community of influencers. Through education, chapter meetings, listserves, and member and business partner collaborations, we have access to knowledge, resources, and information. Each of us both influence, and are influenced by, an incredible circle of people through our connection to PSALA. If we continually expand and strengthen our circles of influence we will always have access to someone who knows something we don’t. Expanding and strengthening our circles of influence – that is what will help inform what the 2016-17 board and committee members do for our chapter, business partners, and our firms in the year to come!
