The ALA is pleased to announce that the association’s web site has been enhanced with some exciting improvements that offer members many self-service capabilities.
The following features are now available:
Your corporate firewall or PC spam filter may be blocking email from the ALA. If it is, that means you won’t get notices about upcoming meetings and new issues of our valuable, members-only publications, such as Cases Pending.
To ensure that your spam filter does not block Association emails, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your list of approved senders, or ask your firm’s IT staff to assist you. Another option is to change the email address in your member profile to one that has less restrictions on incoming mail, such as a home email account.
If your email address changes, please log in to your member profile and update it. Otherwise, you won’t receive notice about all the member-only benefits your dues entitle you to receive.
We will not barrage your inbox with emails, but will send you occasional emails regarding ALA’s upcoming events, new issues of publications, and other official business. The ALA does not sell or rent its member list.
For detailed instructions, view and print the PDF file that explains how to access these extensive new features. If you have questions, please email our administrator, Christine Teed, or call her at (630) 416-1166, ext. #303.
Our enhanced web site requires each member to have a unique user name and password. Your user name is your email address. We’ve also assigned you a randomly generated password which you will be able to change.
Please log on and access your member record, check it for accuracy, make any changes needed, and fill in any missing information. After you update your member record by putting information in a field that was previously empty, you will need to update “Profile access settings” on your member profile in order for other members to be able to view this new information in the online directory.
We have begun to track the number of lawyers in members’ firms or at their employers, and members’ employment type (private practice, government, education, or judge/justice). We also would like you to select your Illinois appellate district. Please fill out this information in your member profile. This new and more complete information will help us tailor our events, activities, and publications to your needs.
Want to find out more about one of our committees? We can always use more volunteers. Visit the ALA Member Data section in your member profile and express interest in one of our 12 active ALA committees.
