 How Do I Join the Forum?


Most members of the Bay Area Legal Forum are  members of a local chapter of Legal Secretaries, Inc. (a non-profit mutual benefit corporation, dedicated to the furtherance of education for legal support staff); however, we do have additional members who are not affiliated with any particular legal secretaries group.

Our fiscal year begins and ends on the first Saturday in May. Members of the Forum are required to attend at least four administrative meetings (May, June, September, December, February, May) each fiscal year, one quarterly workshop (January, July, October) and the annual seminar. Members are reimbursed for expenses related to administrative meetings and the annual seminar (mileage, bridge toll, parking, etc.). Members are entitled to attend all Forum programs free of charge. 

To become a member of the Forum, you must either (1) be appointed from your local Legal Secretaries, Incorporated chapter; or (2) apply for an associate membership.

To find out more information about becoming a member representative of a local Legal Secretaries, Incorporated chapter, please visit their website at to contact a chapter near you.

If you are interested in becoming an associate member of the Forum, please submit your resume and a short letter to the Bay Area Legal Forum, c/o Lori A. Hunt, Treasurer, 2025 Redwood Road #5, Napa, CA 94558.
