Institutional Advancement - Annual Meeting

January 3 – 4, 2019
Hilton New Orleans Riverside

Advancement is Everyone’s Job: Shared Mission, Shared Responsibility, and Shared Information

The Institutional Advancement Program provides professional development specifically for law school staff and faculty involved in alumni relations, communications, development, external affairs, government relations, and public relations.

Join your community January 3 – 4, 2019 at the AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans. The programming will be of value for advancement professionals at a variety of career levels, and the schedule provides ample opportunities to network with your peers, both formally and informally.


The 2019 Institutional Advancement program will run from 8 am – 5 pm on Thursday, January 3, with lunch at 12:15 pm, and a reception immediately after programing concludes from 5:15 – 6:30 pm. On Friday morning, January 4, programming will run from 9 am to 12 pm.


Registration for the Institutional Advancement Program is separate from the full AALS Annual Meeting registration and includes:

  • Admission to Institutional Advancement sessions only;
  • The Institutional Advancement Luncheon on Thursday
  • The AALS Exhibit Hall; and
  • Morning and afternoon refreshment breaks.

The Institutional Advancement rate may only be used by professional staff. Ticketed events and Spouse/Partner registrations cannot be added to this rate.
