    Volunteer Testimonials

    My volunteering for AALNC began as a member of the Webinar Committee in response to a "call for volunteers"  a few years ago. I had attended a couple of AALNC Forums which gave me a pretty good sense of the various committees and I saw first hand how participating could offer me many opportunities to network both professionally and personally. I have found it very rewarding as I have also been a webinar presenter, and now mentor others who are interested in lending their expertise by becoming a webinar speaker. I participated in the First "Mock Trial" event this past year in Chicago which was both exciting and challenging. I met some new attorney contacts, collaborated with some other LNCs, and learned the inner workings of the courtroom process!  Lastly, I have expanded my experiences such as exhibiting my business at the TAANA conference, and will be a first time speaker at the upcoming AALNC Forum this April. Investing my time as a volunteer has opened doors, created many avenues for me to learn from more experienced LNCs, and to market and grow my business among like minded professionals.

    AALNC is THE organizational voice for all LNCs . It is not enough to be a member. I wanted to be involved to help it meet the needs of LNCs and make it a stronger voice for LNCs.   

    What do LNCs need? They need to provide excellent work product to attorneys. They need to learn how to network and find their path to success.

    By working on a committee and on other AALNC educational products , I am helping LNCs improve their work products and knowledge base as well as my own.

    Working with others on this committee has been fun, challenging and rewarding.

    There are plenty of opportunities for members to make a difference through volunteering. When you help run AALNC through volunteering, you are helping yourself and the specialty at the same time. You increase your visibility, add to your CV, network with others and develop your own career. You are opening yourself up to learning from others and teaching others.
