LMASE Board of Directors Spotlight: Jessica Todd, Director of LSC's and the Mentor Match Program
I am pleased to announce that we have 28 mentor/mentee matches for our 2017 Mentor Match Program! This program is dedicated to providing value to our members, making connections, sharing ideas, discussing new initiatives, and creating relationships in our LMASE community. I look forward to speaking with all the mentors and mentees as the year progresses.
Being your Director of Local Steering Committees is such a privilege. The LSC's are the life-force of our organization, and we have an excellent group of leaders. Your LSC Chairs and their leadership team work hard all year to provide members with impactful programming, fun and original networking opportunities, and charity work. Please don't forget to thank your local LSC leaders for all they do.
The year is full steam ahead! Programming topics range from "How to Disrupt, Influence and Lead in a Law Firm as a 'Non-Lawyer'" to "Attorney Bios: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" to "From Valuable to Invaluable: How to Add Value to Client Relationships" to "Survival of the Fittest: Avoiding the Red Flags of Law Firm Failure." The programming is diverse across the LSC's, presenting on business development, communication, artificial intelligence, ethics of legal marketing, PR, LMA Body of Knowledge round table, and so much more.
Not only is there great programming, the LSC's have hosted and/or scheduled Ronald McDonald House volunteer events, LMA Annual and LMASE Regional conference debriefings, networking breakfasts and happy hours, a Future Leaders Program, wine tastings, cooking programs, and even a Churchill Downs reception!
We are working on a new communication tool for the LSC leaders to provide more frequent and consistent communication so they can continue to work to provide the best programming and events for you.
I've seen wonderful collaboration and the sharing of ideas between the LSC's this year, and I am excited for the future of LMASE with these bright leaders at the helm. Here's to the continued success of a great 2017, and to LMASE!
