BENEFITS

 

Networking

A primary benefit of membership is access to other association executives in California through a variety of activities.

  • Retreat: Annual ECLA members "retreat" in a casual, informal setting at a coastal resort for two days. This gives members a chance to talk with each other about common issues, activities, successes and to participate in education about leadership and management skills. One night of the retreat is always to devoted to an excellently planned and fun social event. This event is generally held in May or June of each year.
  • Member to Member: Knowing who your colleagues are throughout the State gives each member direct access to another member who can assist them or direct them to resources they may not know about or just provide support. Executive management can be as the saying goes "lonely at the top."
  • List Serve: ECLA maintains a list serve that can only be accessed by ECLA members. Any member can use the list serve to send communications/requests/information to all the members. The list is one of the more popular benefits of ECLA membership.
  • Annual Business Meeting/Luncheon: Each year at the State Bar of California Annual Meeting, ECLA members meet for a business and networking meeting/luncheon. This gives members a chance to review the Association's finances; discuss issues the membership may want to address as an Association; discuss goals for the upcoming year and elect new officers and, of course, network and eat great food.

Representation at State Bar

ECLA also has a presence as an organization with the California State Bar representing executives and their views on various issues the State Bar may undertake that have an impact on ELCA members' bar associations as well as formal input on events such as the State Bar Bar Leaders Conference held annually. This gives executives a higher profile with the legal community and promotes the executives as partners' in the substantive work of the organized bar.
