ALTA School Representatives
As you may be aware, the ALTA Executive has implemented its ALTA School Representative initiative where one or two members within each of ALTA’s institutional member schools have become a representative of ALTA. These Representatives are able to provide an interface between the ALTA Executive and their individual schools and promote the interests of ALTA within their local law academic communities.
The ALTA Executive sees this as an opportunity to collaborate more closely with its member institutions and to continue to find ways in which to meet the needs of its membership. Representatives also play an important role in ensuring that new Academics become aware of ALTA as an organisation which can assist them in their career development, as well as ensuring that current ALTA members have an opportunity to enjoy an active participation in the activities of the Association.
The role of ALTA Representatives is to:
a. Promote and represent ALTA activities and membership within their individual school.
b. Disseminate ALTA information through:
i. Emails to their school’s law academics
ii. Distribution of ALTA Membership Packs to new members/staff
iii. Distribution of conference, prizes and awards information to their Dean/Head of School with a view to encouraging participation by staff within their school
c. Communicate to the ALTA Executive any particular concerns of the membership located in their school.
d. Produce a biannual report incorporating ALTA activities affecting their individual School and any other activities which may be relevant to ALTA, which is published online and in the ALTA Newsletter.
e. If possible, attend the ALTA Conference, including the Convener and School Representative Cocktail Function, which serves as a “thank you” for undertaking the role and importantly provides a formal opportunity for Representatives to meet with the ALTA Executive.
