Alamo Association of Legal Administrators
Dana Gold Scholarship

The Association of Legal Administrators' mission is to improve the quality of management in legal services organizations; promote and enhance the competence and professionalism of legal administrators and all members of the management team; and represent professional legal management and managers to the legal community and to the community at large.

Each year, the Alamo Chapter chooses to honor one member of our chapter who best carries out our mission. This local award is named after Dana Gold, one of our long-time members who truly did exemplify the spirit of the Association of Legal Administrators throughout his membership in our chapter. The recipient of the award receives a scholarship to ALA’s Annual Educational Conference, which is held each year in different cities throughout the United States.

Dana Gold was the Administrator of Tinsman & Houser, Inc. (now Tinsman, Scott & Sciano, Inc.) and joined the ALA in April 1988. While he was a member he was very active, serving as the chairperson of numerous committees, on the Board of Directors and as President of the Board from April 1991 to March 1992.

During his tenure on the board Dana always proved to be creative and insightful in all that he did, teaching many of us how to be better at what we did along the way. He did this even after his illness, teaching us another lesson in grace and strength. Dana passed away on August 17, 2002, at the age of 55 years.

Dana Gold, memorialized by a scholarship that this chapter has established.
