Message from the President ~ Mary Ellen Borgelt, Texas
I am so honored to be your President this year. It has come swiftly, and suddenly, we’re here, in San Francisco, launching into 2016-2017! I am very grateful. You are a fabulous group of individuals offering friendship and competency, year after year, as we fulfill our high purpose: to nurture the rule of law for freedom’s sake.
You are Awesome! Sue Bennett asked, “Do you have a theme?” One had not come to me. But in putting together the ALA Board Member materials, I realized you are awesome. Together, we are awesome. As the year flies by, I hope we will remember our history and honor all who are today making American Lawyers Alliance awesome. So, my theme is “Don’t Forget to be Awesome!”
As we endeavor to foster understanding and respect for the American legal system, let’s continue to seek ways to grow our network serving spouses of lawyers and continue fine recognition of those on the front lines of providing citizenship education in our country. Please contact me when you have a concern or suggestion for better accomplishing our goals in the coming year.
With great respect,
Mary Ellen Borgelt, ALA President 2016~2017
