Business Partner Information
The Metropolitan Detroit Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators (the “Chapter”) offers many business partner opportunities throughout the year. Annual sponsorship packages begin on January 1 and end on December 31. The Chapter’s goal is to have mutually beneficial relationships with its business partners. Although the Chapter does not endorse one business partner over another, the Chapter does encourage its members to consider supporting its business partners when looking for products and/or services.
The Chapter holds the following events for its business partner supporters:
1) Business Partner Appreciation Reception
2) Business Partner Exposition
3) Spring Business Partner/Member Social Event
The Chapter has formed a Business Partner Advisory Committee made up of several business partners who work with the Chapter to facilitate professional relationships between the Chapter’s members and business partners.
A business partner database is available to the Chapter’s members on this website listing various business categories of the Chapter’s business partners.
Please take this opportunity to partner with the Chapter as we work together to provide better business opportunities for members and vendors. If you have any questions regarding any of these opportunities, please contact Cynthia Whitcomb at 248-351-5421 (Cynthia.Whitcomb@ceflawyers.com) or any member of the Chapter’s Board of Directors.
