What Our Members Are Saying

Gina Roers-Liemandt

“So many of us in ACLEA are in the same boat, and just having a group of professionals who are experiencing the same challenges and are willing to share and discuss options and opportunities has been invaluable.”

Gina Roers-Liemandt, Director of MCLE and Professional Development for the American Bar Association
(formerly Product Manager for Thomson Reuters’ West LegalEdcenter


What has surprised you most about being a member of ACLEA?

Alexandra Wong

“The willingness of all members to share ideas and best practices on how to make CLE better. The meeting of minds is an awesome generator of fresh ideas. We are all in CLE for the same reasons – to educate lawyers, paralegals and/or other legal professionals and to provide them with the essentials/ tools to function effectively in an ever changing legal services landscape.”

Alexandra Wong The Law Society of Upper Canada


Gina Roers-Liemandt

“How willing members are to share their knowledge, advice, and expertise with one another. More than any other organization to which I’ve belonged, ACLEA members are generous with their time and support.”

Gina Roers-Liemandt, Director of MCLE and Professional Development for the American Bar Association
(formerly Product Manager for Thomson Reuters’ West LegalEdcenter

Diane Morrison

“This probably shouldn’t really be counted as a surprise, but it’s a constant delight to find so much camaraderie and sharing of ideas among the members of ACLEA. After this many years as part of the organization, I really look forward to seeing people at the meetings, not just for networking purposes, but to catch up as friends.”

Diane Morrison, State Bar of Texas


Stuart Teicher

“I’ve been involved in many trade organizations in my career, but never have I experienced a group of professionals who were so genuinely eager to help one another. Plus, people in this organization really like each other. That’s a big deal.”

Stuart Teicher, Teicher Professional Growth, LLC


Jennifer Flynn

“As an ACLEA member, I expected to learn a lot from attending conferences. What surprised me most, however, was just how much I have learned from ACLEA in other ways. I love that ACLEA attracts such a diverse array of people with different backgrounds and experiences. I continue to learn so much from the personal connections I have made.”

Jennifer Flynn, Legal Education Society of Alberta


Karen Lee

“The connectivity among the members. It might take a couple of years to find your groove, but once you do, the relationships you develop with other CLE professionals are like gold. Nowhere else can you find a group of people who “speak CLE” and can share your pain (and sympathize with the complaints).”

Karen Lee, Oregon State Bar


Una Doyle

“That’s an easy question! I was amazed that there was a whole group of people facing the same issues, challenges, and dilemmas as me. CLE can be a lonely world as usually there is just one role or a small team in a larger organization. Finding such a fantastic group of professionals working in the same line of work as I was really helped me in a range of ways.”

Una Doyle


What do you remember from your first ACLEA meeting?

Diane Morrison

“My first meeting was in Toronto. What I remember most—and it was a delightful surprise—was meeting other people who were dealing with the exact same issues I was! It was a revelation that there were others out there struggling with (or conquering) challenges in legal publishing. Now I can’t believe I ever didn’t know this.”

Diane Morrison, State Bar of Texas


Jennifer Flynn

“My first ACLEA meeting was in Vancouver, just shortly after I started at LESA. I was blown away by how generous ACLEA members were with both their time and knowledge. I felt tremendously supported.”

Jennifer Flynn, Legal Education Society of Alberta
