The countdown has begun! 2017 is just around the corner and for many this is a welcome relief from a challenging 2016. However, for LMA, particularly the Capital Chapter, I am glad to report the upside.
As each year passes, I am increasingly grateful for LMA and all that it has to offer. One of the things that I appreciate the most is the openness of the community and how willing we are to help one another succeed in our respective roles -- whether as in-house legal professionals or consultants, trainers or solution providers. It is this willingness and sense of comradery that has paid dividends in the organization’s ability to deliver high-value membership offerings to those that engage, whether as program participants or presenters, Board members or occasional volunteers.
Notably, in the last 12 months, with the help of many hardworking and committed people, we set records in membership, program and event attendance, social media participation and volunteer numbers. I can’t think of a better launching pad for the roll-out of our regional structure and I enthusiastically look forward to seeing all that we can accomplish as a bigger Mid-Atlantic team.
In my last days as your President, I want to thank you for your involvement over the course of the last 12 months and for helping us raise the bar for the years to come. It has been a hugely rewarding honor.
