President's Welcome Message

I’m Donna Bustos, serving as your OC-ALA Chapter President and I welcome you to OC-ALA’s 2020-2021 year.  We begin this year with a web of challenges because of this pandemic.  All of us are currently processing these challenging times with uncertainty both personally and professionally.  As each day goes by and each conversation is had, I’m comforted in knowing we are strong.  Strong people, strong legal community and a strong chapter.  Speaking of strength, let me introduce you to this year’s board members.  President Donna Bustos, President-Elect Lisa Waligorski, CLM, Vice President Rachel Alm, Secretary Deborah Miller, Treasurer Kelly Hess, Treasurer-Elect Ann Thompson, CLM, Director of Membership Andrea Greil, Director at Large Toni Burnside, Past President Mike Shuff.  Thank you all for taking on your roles and a big thanks as well to everyone who volunteered on the extended board. 

 

We had so much planned for our members and Business Partners and we were excited to move forward with events such as Project Self, conferences, and networking events.  Unfortunately, this year is unlike any other and most events have been postponed or modified.   What hasn’t wavered is OC-ALA’s commitment to our members and Business Partners.  Rest assured that everyone is working behind the scenes and brainstorming with innovative ideas on how to move forward over the next few months.  In a commitment to our education program, OC-ALA is working with its Business Partners and other resources to provide educational sessions that will allow us to learn.   We greatly value our Business Partners and recognize that you are not receiving the full value of your sponsorship.  OC-ALA is taking steps towards a continuity plan that will remedy this situation for our members and Business Partners.  Once solidified we will share this plan with you.  What’s important now is that we stay safe and healthy so we can move towards a new normal.
