2013 LMA-LA Continuing Marketing Education
The Los Angeles Chapter of the Legal Marketing Association (LMA-LA) is seeking proposals for its 2013 Continuing Marketing Education (CME) conference on Wednesday, September 25, 2013 in Los Angeles.
For 2013, our working event theme “Big Ideas: Brought to Life,” extends upon last year’s full-day program, which brought together more than 125 marketing professionals and attorneys. We are seeking presentations that focus on a notable idea and how to practically implement the concept. Presentation categories include:
- Trending Now
Legal industry issues currently trending – e.g., pricing, project management, analyzing data, etc.
- Cross Collaborations that Work
Case studies or examples of successful cross-administrative department collaborations – e.g., marketing and recruiting, marketing and technology, etc.
- Professional Development
Ideas for legal marketing professionals to acquire and implement skills as well as using them within the firm – e.g., attorney coaching, conflict resolution, implementing change, etc.
- Tools for Success
Essential skills to ensure a marketers success
We seek creative presentations that will underscore our conference’s core theme to a wide audience of legal marketing professionals in business development, marketing, PR, communications, technology, as well as practicing lawyers who oversee the marketing function at their firm. Each presentation should have practical, readily adaptable takeaways.
BIG IDEAS. 20 MINUTES OR LESS. CONTINUED FOR 2013.
This year we will continue the TED Talks-style presentation format we introduced last year. Each presenter has up to 20 minutes to communicate his or her “big idea.” The format has proved to be hugely successful for both speakers and attendees, especially for its ability to spur interest and conversation after the presentation. Here’s a link to the video we will be using to promote this year’s conference.
