Message from the Philadelphia ALA Chapter President

Welcome to the Philadelphia Chapter of the ALA, where we strive to think outside the box, keep up with the latest trends as it impacts the legal community, and serve as a resource for our member’s needs.   We have a dynamic board ready to serve the chapter by offering thought provoking educational sessions, creative socials, and networking opportunities with other members and our business partners. 

Our chapter consist of a diverse membership of over 200 members from all areas of the legal community including small to large law firms, corporate legal departments, and community legal services.  We are also privileged to be partnered with over 30 business partners who are experts in their fields and available to members as an additional resource.  

If there’s anything we can do to help support you, please reach out to me, Alexa Santangelo or Krista Hart with any questions, comments, ideas, or concerns at [email protected].

-Shaun W. Jones, Chapter President 2024-2026

The Philadelphia ALA is a diverse, and inclusive group of administrative professionals in and around the greater Philadelphia area. Philadelphia is referred to as a city of brotherly and sisterly love and reflects a rich diversity of cultural, religious, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, mental and physical disability, and socio-economic backgrounds. The  Philadelphia ALA embraces and celebrates this diversity and recognizes that there is great value in the differences of peoples and bringing them together. We elevate and honor our community by drawing from the full diversity of the city, seeking to achieve an equitable and inclusive membership striving to become a model chapter accessible to all. National DEIA resources can be found here.
