LMA is seeking experienced and dynamic presenters to deliver high-level educational programming to the attendees of our 2018 annual conference, which will take place April 9-11 at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Annual conference attendees comprise multiple levels of legal marketing and business development professionals, from entry-level coordinators to senior level directors and officers, who want skills and tools they can apply immediately.

What are we looking for?

The ideal speaker can deliver practical advice, tips and “real world” examples, as well as value-added takeaways such as checklists, outlines, articles and lists of suggested further reading.
