The Chapter is once again offering an opportunity to complete the Oregon Products and Services survey.   This survey is used by law firms in Oregon and Southwest Washington as a valuable resource when selecting products and services in our local market.  You will have, at your fingertips, knowledge and resources to help you make informed decisions. 

The survey will take a quick 10-15 minutes.  Responses are needed by March 22nd, 2019; results will be available for viewing by participating firms at the beginning of April.   The first 10 firms to complete the survey will receive a $25.00 gift card and will be entered into a drawing for a $200.00 gift card

To complete the survey: Visit to take the survey. Please contact Ed Cunningham  if you have difficulties accessing the survey.

Thank you in advance for participating in this valuable survey! 
Donna Moser, ALA Resources Service Director
