Many of you are likely familiar with the old African proverb, “it takes a village to raise a child,” which reinforces the importance of family and community when tackling a project of significant importance.
Applying that concept to our world — the world legal marketing, I’d like to adapt that saying and its meaning and say “it takes a region.” It takes the collective dedication of the totality of our regional members to provide the support, education and camaraderie to keep moving our profession forward in the wake of constant change. And after all, isn’t that the primary reason we join and become involved in LMA — to share what we have learned, and learn from others in turn, to continue to raise our level of professionalism as individuals and as a group of individuals? It takes a community.
Fall is a time of change, the harvest season when we reap what we have sown and ultimately gather together on Thanksgiving as we practice gratitude. The autumnal season represents all of the aspects of Fall in the context of our LMA community. We gather together by region and look back on what the year has taught us and look ahead to apply that learning. In the Northeast region, when we gather together, great things happen, and I have been fortunate to see the full panoply of this region’s efforts in my role as LMA Northeast President this year.
I saw our achievements demonstrated a few weeks ago at our 2018 LMA Northeast Regional Conference in Boston. I am grateful to all of our regional and local volunteers for all of their work and collaboration all year long. We have had some truly remarkable programs in 2018, and benefit from the communications and resources available to us. This “bounty” is all because of members like you. You have participated, shared and given back. This organization is your advocate for success!
Our region is comprised of a group of some of the most talented individuals in our industry. LMA Northeast members have always been focused on advocating for each other, dedicated to fostering growth and moving our industry forward. This focus allows members to succeed, which is the ultimate goal. Those of you who have been members for a while know this to be true, and those who are new to the industry will soon find out.
It has been an honor to serve as the 2018 LMA Northeast president. Thank you for your support and participation.
