GLA ALA Leadership Exchange - Summer 2019 - 12

2019 ALA
Conference

While the storms in Texas conspired against many GLA
ALA members (including our own President Debra Gray and
other members of the board!) from getting into Dallas to
attend the 2019 ALA Annual Conference in Grapevine Texas,
other travelers had their own issues waiting for a gate to be
able to even get off the airplane after landing! Eventually
most everyone got to the conference to learn, explore and
have fun.
The learning came from the 70+ wonderful selections of
educational offerings in the 3 day event giving us 15+ quality
educational hours. We all have our favorite classes and one
of mine was 'Harnessing Headwinds' with an elite fighter
pilot retired Col. Nicole Malachowski - super inspiring and
fun. And you didn't have to attend to be able to log into the
ALAnet.org site and go to the 2019 conference and take a
look at all the wonderful educational offering and pull down
the back up and presentation materials. Really good stuff
there that is free to members!
The exploring was helped by having over 55 expo legal
vendors who look forward each year to showing us what's

new and are genuinely excited to help us do our jobs better.
These expos are always great ways to learn new things and
keep on top of the new products. We also were in a huge
venue - The Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center,
which literally was an indoor environment with glass ceilings,
causing us to wonder what really was going on weatherwise outside of our conference world.
The fun was to be had everywhere. We were able to
network with members from across the country and world
in the expo inspired events, the idea exchanges and
educational sessions. While there was no real need to leave
the place we jokingly called the "Biosphere", with the many
restaurants, bars and stores and the ability to get easily
from your room to the convention center, we did leave to
have some fun with the business partners. First Legal had
their Annual Client Appreciation Party at the Circle R Ranch
in Flower Mound Texas. The food, dancing and armadillo
wrangling was fun!! And dancing to the special DJs at the
closing ALA VIP BP event was great too. Another great
conference done - thanks ALA! n
