FELLOWS EVENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES
LCLD FELLOWS ALUMNI GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE
Our Fellows Alumni Executive Council has chartered a small team to design and define the by-laws for our Executive Council and the broader Alumni organization. This important work will help us build a stronger organization with established principles and processes to better develop a strategic mission with long term and short term goals which reflect the interests of our members.
We are looking for volunteers from each Alumni class. Please volunteer or nominate a colleague if you think they would like to join our team. This project is expected to be completed within 6 months with very manageable time commitment (likely a monthly 30 min call, and drafting/review of by-laws via email). Please contact Ronald Sia at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tamre Edwards at email@example.com if you can help.
PAY IT FORWARD: Encourage Members to Nominate 2017 Fellows and Pathfinders
Did you enjoy your Fellows year? Are there others in your organization that you think would benefit from the program? If so, be sure to share your story and ensure that your organization participates in 2017. Please reach out to your General Counsel or Managing Partner and the diversity contacts at your organization to start the conversation. Feel free to share the 2017 Fellows Program Prospectus and Member Tool Kit, as well as the Pathfinder Program Fact Sheet and Quick Reference Guide.
For questions about the Fellows Program or the Pathfinder Program, please contact Lori Lorenzo, LCLD Program Director.
THE PERFECT TIME TO PLAN THE NEXT FELLOWS ALUMNI EVENT IS NOW!
Are you an LCLD Fellow thinking about organizing a Fellows’ alumni event in your area? From an informal happy hour to a discussion featuring the general counsel you most admire, planning an alumni event is a great way to connect with Fellows who share your passion for making the profession more inclusive and diverse. Planning an event also helps you build your brand, establish relationships with law firms and legal departments in your area and gets you some invaluable exposure to senior leadership. Fellows interested in planning an event should contact the Program Development Committee of the Alumni Executive Council by clicking here. All class years and geographic areas are encouraged to contact us today!
LCLD FELLOWS CRUISE: Jan. 13-16, 2017
Please join your LCLD Fellows for the LCLD Inaugural 3-Day Cruise for MLK weekend (Jan. 13-16) from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas, and Norwegian Cruise Line's private island. It is an all-inclusive cruise, i.e., all drinks are included. Although we see each other at the Alumni Conference, a group of us in Chicago though it would be nice to see each other on a more frequent basis. Therefore, we planned a cruise. All Fellows and their families are invited. If you would like to book a cabin, please contact Melissa Lobo at Norwegian Cruise Line at 954.514.4553 directly as prices vary based on the type of room. If you reserve rooms before August 31, you may receive half-off your deposit. If you have any questions about the cruise, please contact Yvette Gatling at firstname.lastname@example.org or 713.652.4740. We look forward to seeing each of you there.
