President’s Message

Message from 2017-2018 President
Tanya Duprey

It is such an honor to serve as this year’s chapter president.  I feel particularly privileged to serve alongside an amazing board of directors as we work in service of this incredible chapter.

ALANYC was founded in 1977 and has since built a tremendous legacy of education, networking and the advancement of legal management professionals.Our members come from diverse legal backgrounds including solo practices, midsized and large regional firms, branch offices of national and global firms, and in-house corporate legal departments.

In keeping with our legacy, this will be a year of continued focus on high-level education and diverse content. We will continue to address the most important and complex issues facing the legal community today including cyber liability and security, labor and employment law developments, and diversity and inclusion.  In collaboration with our business partners, peer organizations and local bar association alliances, we will continue our community outreach initiatives and develop new programming geared towards both the current and future needs of legal management.

Through my conversations with leaders in all size firms, it became clear that more opportunities for law firm management to discuss the pressing issues of the day with industries leaders, was in high demand.  By facilitating as many forums as possible among industry members, we can develop best practices that all firms can rely on. To that end, I am particularly excited to share that this year we are introducing a Law Firm Management Thought Leadership luncheon featuring roundtable discussions led by industry experts on hot topic issues.  This will be a can’t miss event!

As a servant leader, I am committed to listening to our members, maintaining awareness around our chapter’s purpose, and continuously working towards expanding our community.  The Thought Leadership luncheon is just one of the many exciting programs and initiatives the Board and I are working to bring to ALANYC.  The legal industry is constantly changing, and we as management professionals must constantly evolve with it. ALANYC strives to provide its members with the tools they need to stay ahead of the curve.
