Experienced Professionals Section

The Experienced Professionals Section includes NALP members who self-identify as "experienced" in the legal recruitment industry and seek to collaborate with similarly situated colleagues for purposes of networking and professional development and to contribute to activities, services, and educational programs to benefit NALP. Section members can be characterized by years of NALP membership, years in the industry, and/or levels of leadership engagement within their organizations or with NALP. (It is suggested that members have at least eight years of experience in a lead role and have actively participated in NALP.)

Work Groups:

Annual Education Conference Planning/Bulletin Article Planning
Brainstorm with Section membership to develop ideas and identify speakers for the 2017 Annual Education Conference and topics for Bulletin articles. Assist members through the completion of the RFP processes for both. Give particular consideration to topics related to informing newer/heretofore uninvolved members about pathways to leadership.

Experienced Professionals and Newer Professionals Collaboration
Collaborate with the Newer Professionals Section to determine interest in formal or informal joint activities. The purpose is to create a menu of opportunities for the Section members who enjoy mentoring to “give back” and assist in the professional development of newer members (e.g., Experienced Professionals conference calls, online chats, video conferences) on a topic of interest to newer professionals facilitated by experienced professionals. Work with the Newer Professionals Section to create a webinar to welcome members to NALP, describe the organizational structure and resources, and describe how to get involved.
