November 2017: #BetterTogether: A Recap of NALS 66th National Conference

NALS Board Blog - NALS 66th Annual Recap ArticleThis year’s annual education and networking conference was one of the best conferences to date.  We kicked off the conference with a welcome reception where all attendees were invited to come and visit with all their NALS Pals.  Attendees were greeted at the door by the NALS Board and first timers were welcomed with a “celebration tunnel.” 


The next morning, the conference started with our keynote speaker international speaker, author, and former legal secretary from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, Cheryl Wood.  Cheryl excited us with her passion and relation to the legal industry.  She reminded us that we’re all winners and that winning was “in our DNA”!  Cheryl talked to us about strengths and weaknesses and how when we rely on others in our weak areas, it makes us better—because we’re better together.


After the keynote, we headed into various CLE and professional development/leadership sessions such as Bankruptcy, Litigation and the Use of Social Media, and Cultivating Leadership to name a few.  We had several other exciting, entertaining, and informative sessions over the next few days.  We also enjoyed a superhero-themed event sponsored by the NALS Foundation where we met some superheroes we already knew and quite a few new superheroes. 


Lastly, just before we wrapped up the conference with our inspiration station and closing session, we awarded the NALS Award of Excellence to Debra Taylor, PP, PLS, and acknowledged and thanked the Norfolk Education Task Force chair, Tara Jean Brown, and her committee for putting together great education.


While 2017 has been a fantastic year, we have some amazing events coming in 2018, starting off with the NALS 2018 Virtual Leadership Course and Education Series in March; Adventure Tulsa, April 6-7, 2018; Leadership Appreciation Day, July 5, 2018; and the NALS 67th Annual Education and Networking Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, September 20-22, 2018. View our events online at NALS.org/Events.


We hope to see you in 2018!
