Happy New Year LMASE friends!
It certainly is great to be able to turn the page to a new year and a fresh start. I know each of us has experienced a year unlike any other. While we will continue to face challenges, we have the opportunity to forge ahead and create new opportunities and achieve much success in 2021.
During our LMASE/LSC Leadership meetings in December, I shared with everyone my focus for the year which is Being Resilient. We discussed opportunities for being resilient and advancing despite adversity.
Your LMASE Board and LSC Chairs are working on innovative ideas and I am very much looking forward to advancing the great work of LMASE!
We know this year will look a little different and I’m excited to share some of these changes with you.
Our programming focus will move to a region-wide effort. Rather than each LSC hosting individual virtual programming, they will partner to produce monthly “lunch and learn” programming for all LMASE members to attend. Not only will everyone be able to benefit from informative programming, but we’ll be able to connect with members from across the region. Click here for information about our January program, hosted by the Atlanta LSC.
Due to the circumstances, the LMASE Board decided not to host a conference in 2021. However, quarterly LMASE-directed programming will occur in March, June, September and November – look for these to be more in-depth than the one-hour “lunch and learn” programming. We are putting the final touches on our Business Development Bootcamp, which will be held in March!
With this update to programming, LSCs will be able to focus on member engagement and networking (virtual for now). I hope you’ll take advantage of your LSC’s networking events to meet with local members.
Thank you for your membership in and support of LMASE. There is truly so much to be gained, both professionally and personally, through your involvement with this organization. I hope that you will take advantage of the many benefits LMASE has to offer in 2021.
I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!
2021 LMASE President
