“We are delighted to have Network 1 Consulting as a Diamond Level Sponsor and appreciate their continued support,” says Elena Lee, AALA President. “Tony Rushin is a delight to work with, has a lot of integrity, and is professional and responsive.  Tony has volunteered his time at several AALA projects which have been extremely successful to our program.  I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Tony through his participation with AALA and he is truly a valuable member of our team.   When Tony asks how I’m doing, asks about my family or if I need any help, I know that he truly cares and will be there for me and the firm should we have a need.”

According to Lee, “AALA is one of the largest chapters in the 10,000+ member Association of Legal Administrators and is continuously recognized as a leader in providing outstanding resources for our membership and business partners alike. Because of this and the support of Business Partners like Network1 Consulting, the Atlanta chapter has received the honor of being a Platinum level chapter from ALA since 2003, a designation which takes a great deal of effort to achieve.  Vital to our success is the involvement and support of our Business Partners which, over the course of many years, have been both rewarding and truly beneficial to the chapter. Without the support of our Business Partners, many of the wonderful educational opportunities and benefits provided to our members would be not be possible.”

As an AALA Business Partner, Network 1 enjoys exclusive opportunities to interact with the chapter members through networking events, recognition opportunities, educational offerings and service opportunities.  In fact, our most rewarding experiences have been service opportunities: whether getting sweaty and muddy helping to clear land at the Morningside Nature Preserve or helping a Westlake high school student apply to college.   This email address is being protected from spambots.
