LMA Philadelphia Committees

Metropolitan Philadelphia Chapter

One of the most valuable benefits of membership in LMA is the opportunity to participate on committees: not only giving back to your profession and your colleagues, but also gaining experience and leadership skills that can advance your career. We welcome and encourage you to participate.  Should you be interested, please contact the committee chair directly.  Joining a committee is a powerful way for members to develop as professionals, hone their craft, learn their industry, build relationships, and bring additional value to their firms and clients.
