AALA’s Tendenci®-powered website named best by Association of Legal Administrators 

ATLANTA, May 17, 2010 – Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing and Web design company, today praised the Atlanta Association of Legal Administrators (AALA) for winning top honors for its website from the international Association of Legal Administrators (ALA). ALA named the AALA website (www.atlanta-ala.com), which is powered by Tendenci online management software, the best website among its large chapters (more than 100 members).
Tendenci is developed and marketed by Schipul.

Launched in early 2008, the AALA website leverages many of the most powerful features of Tendenci that are proven to deliver maximum value to membership organizations. Tendenci maintains AALA’s member database, automates new member sign-ups, promotes upcoming events, and manages event registrations and online payments. With Tendenci, the AALA website makes it easy for users to post jobs, look through the chapter’s online photo albums and respond to periodic surveys.

“I have no interest in learning HTML, so Tendenci’s content management system (CMS) is perfect because it makes it easy to add and edit content on our website without having to go through a Web developer,” said Jennifer Brinkley, chapter manager of AALA. “Tendenci is also cost-effective, saving our chapter thousands of dollars each quarter with an integrated e-newsletter tool. It is easy to create and send e-newsletters ourselves with no additional costs.”

ALA provides support to professionals involved in the management of law firms, corporate legal departments and government legal agencies. It has more than 10,000 members and 98 chapters in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and New Zealand. The Atlanta Chapter has approximately 200 members.

“AALA is a great illustration of how an organization can leverage technology to advance its mission,” said Ed Schipul, president and chief executive officer with Schipul – The Web Marketing Company.

ALA named AALA the winner of the Award of Excellence for Chapter Websites (Large Chapter) at its Annual Educational Conference and Exposition in Boston. In addition to websites, ALA recognized education excellence, newsletter excellence, business partner relations and achievements in community service and diversity, among others.
