On the 2nd Day of Social Media, My SIG Leaders Gave to Me...2 Legal Marketing Conferences to Check Out!
At first glance, conferences may seem like the perfect excuse to get away from the office and go somewhere warm or tropical (aren't all conferences in hot and tropical places?!). But it's not all about getting out of the office - it's about learning new things, sharing your knowledge with colleagues, feeling reenergized, and networking.
Legal marketing is one of those niche professions. No one really knows it exists unless you know someone in the biz. Which is why the Legal Marketing Association is so great - and so is its conference!
It's a no-brainer that LMA's Annual Conference (being held this year in San Diego - see...tropical!) is #1 on our conferences to check out list. But we promise that we have good reason to recommend it.
It's 3-days of non-stop learning and fun - and that means you're not just "stuck" listening to speakers all day. There are multiple tracks of learning for those who want to learn more about social media than pricing. This seems to be standard at many conferences, but how many are specifically for legal marketers? And where else would you have access to that many colleagues, from places around the country? This conference is so valuable to me because of the people - they're willing to listen and share, and sometimes, that's all it takes to become reenergized!
Adam Stock and the rest of the CA chapters have done an outstanding job with the technology conference. You missed it if you were planning to go this year (it was held in October), but there's plenty of time to start planning for 2015. We recommend this conference because of its focus - legal technology. They not only focus on hot legal technology trends, but they demonstrate them in their conference marketing, as well. And really, how many other legal conferences have sessions on coding? Sign me up!
