NALS of Orange County...the association for legal professionals*

NALS of Orange County*, formerly known as Newport-Santa Ana Legal Secretaries Association, is affiliated with "NALS, Inc....the association for legal professionals" (our national association). NALS was founded in 1949; for more information about the history of NALS, please visit www.nals.org.

NALS' main objective is to enhance the competencies of legal professionals through continuing legal education, technology, and networking with other legal professionals in our local community, state, region, and throughout the nation.

NALS of Orange County sponsors a wide variety of programs and activities throughout the year designed to increase the effectiveness, expertise and skills of our members. Educational meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Costa Mesa, CA.

In the same manner as the bar association functions for its members, NALS of Orange County attempts to inspire law office staff to obtain professional excellence. Continuing legal education, which is beneficial to the cross-section of our members, is provided. Career development is enhanced. Experts and authorities continue to research new methods, techniques and products to provide the best resources at all levels in our association.

* Newport-Santa Ana Legal Secretaries Association was chartered in March 1987. On February 13, 2002, the members of Newport-Santa Ana LSA voted to change its name to NALS of Orange County. The purpose of the name change was to expand our membership to people who work in the legal profession in positions other than secretaries. The newly-named chapter was chartered by NALS in March 2002.
