* Newport-Santa Ana Legal
Secretaries Association was chartered in March 1987. On February 13, 2002, the
members of Newport-Santa Ana LSA voted to change its name to NALS of Orange
County. The purpose of the name change was to expand our membership to people
who work in the legal profession in positions other than secretaries. The
newly-named chapter was chartered by NALS in March 2002.
