LMA Bay Area Committees

We welcome and encourage you to participate in any of the LMA - Bay Area Local Group’s committees. Should you be interested, please feel free to contact the committee chair directly by clicking the "Leadership" tab. Joining a committee is a wonderful way to learn, network and add continuing value for our members.


Programs Committee  – Education

Often referred to as the “heart” of the organization, the Educational Programs Committee produces innovative and timely programming each month for the professional development of Bay Area legal marketers. Our committee is a fun and lively group with backgrounds not only in law firm marketing, but also public relations, print and online media, event planning, and business development. Each member brings a wealth of knowledge, industry contacts, technology and event planning to the mix.  We are always looking for talented and committed LMA members to join our stellar team.


Special Events Committee

The Special Events Committee meets year round and produce the Your Honor Awards, the Summer Socials, the Holiday Party and the "Thirsty Thursday" mixers in the summer. 


Communications Committee

The Communications Committee handles all of the Local Group's communication needs, including the weekly Splash newsletter (each Friday), the Local Group’s social media channels, media coordination and various outreach vehicles aimed at similarly situated professional groups.


Membership & Outreach Committee
