In 1939, the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) created procedures governing the establishment of local Chapters.  Since then, the number of AALL Chapters has grown to thirty.  Each Chapter serves a specific geographic region, offering members access to educational and networking opportunities as well as social events.  Many have been active advocates for legislation and social change at the state and federal levels.  Collectively, they have almost eighty years of stories to be told.  Their rich history is documented in the records they produce.  Panelists will present brief overviews of how their respective Chapters preserve the legacy of their membership.  Our goal is to stimulate an audience-wide dialog about the benefits and challenges of managing Chapter archival resources.
