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 email@example.com or 713.652.4740.
