The Future Leaders Special Interest Group (SIG) serves those who are new to legal marketing by providing them with support, mentorship, peer networking opportunities, and relevant training.
The Future Leaders SIG begins 2014 with new leadership and an exciting line-up of programs! Co-chairs Kara Kane, Michelle Gamlen and Inna Kolomiytsev are planning bi-monthly brown-bag luncheons for anyone with less than five years of experience in legal marketing. These programs will be offset by informal happy hours, which are intended to provide an open forum for discussion and casual networking among peers.
Below is the current 2014 Future Leaders SIG program schedule:
- March 6: From Coordinator to Manager: How to Make it Happen
- April 24: Meet the Board
- June: Law Firm 101
- August: Business Development 1001: What the Heck am I Doing?
- November: Building Relationships and Credibility with Your Attorneys: What do Attorneys Expect From Us Anyway?
- December: Basic Legal Marketing Ethics: What You Can and Cannot Say
The SIG recognizes the value of member involvement and asks members for program topics. Additionally, we are always in need of speakers and space to host our events. If you would like to speak or can volunteer your space to host, or if you are interested in joining the group, please contact Kara Kane at email@example.com.
