2015 LMA Annual Conference Advisory Committee



Ashraf Lakhani
Director of Business Development and Marketing
Porter Hedges LLP

While I have been active in the LMA at the city group, chapter and now international level for more than 10 years, I often still feel like I'm new to the industry and I don't ever want to forget that feeling. As conference Co-Chair, I am especially interested enhancing the experience of the first-time and newer attendees, ensuring that they hit the ground running when they arrive and leave counting down the days until the gathering the next year. The LMA has changed my life, both professionally and personally, I can't wait to share my enthusiasm about the organization and where our industry is going with more than a thousand of my friends in sunny San Diego.

LMA has been part of my legal marketing world since I made the leap from accounting firms to law firms many years ago. I’ve had the privilege of participating in Chapter events across the country. I’ve made friends through LMA on both coasts. And I continue to be amazed at the energy and commitment of those who have dedicated so much time to this evolving organization. It is an honor to co-chair the 2015 conference and I look forward to working with our conference team on delivering a stellar event in San Diego.

Advancing your skillset and broadening your network makes you a relevant and sought after entity within the legal community.  Attending the LMA Annual Conference accomplishes both!  Plus, who in their right mind would pass up spending a few days in San Diego?!?  I hope you’ll join me in making the 2015 Annual Conference everything you want it to be.

My mother always told me that when the President calls and asks for a favor, you do it. Needless to say, I’m excited to work with such a talented group of legal marketers in planning the 2015 LMA Annual Conference. I feel honored to have been asked, and can’t wait to get started in conceptualizing an aggressive agenda that pushes the envelope of forward-thinking best practices, big ideas, and thought-provoking concepts for future leaders in law firm business development, communications and marketing. I’m also looking forward to seeing everyone again, and meeting many new faces in sunny San Diego…

2015 marks my 25th anniversary in this rewarding profession. So when 2015 LMA President Adam Severson invited me to join the annual conference advisory committee I couldn’t say no. There are many reasons all LMAers will want to come to San Diego in April. The weather will be perfect. Our friends will all be there. We’ll learn from leading-edge marketers. We’ll be re-energized. We’ll get a tan. Come on down!

I joined the committee because I want to give back to LMA. I joined LMA 12 years ago and cannot express how many wonderful friends I have made and the vast amount of knowledge I have gained. Being a member is truly a blessing and has significantly enhanced my career.
