FELLOWS ALUMNI - ARE YOU ALL IN?
When the Executive Council asked Fellows Alumni if they would be willing to support the program with an annual contribution, the overwhelming response was, "We're All In!" Funding is crucial for the strength and growth of the Fellows Alumni association, so the EC asks each of you to make a personal commitment of $125.
LCLD PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE
The LCLD Program Development Committee's mission is to increase Fellows' interaction with other LCLD program participants and among each other, by organizing networking events and substantive programming. These events play an important role in keeping the LCLD family together. Over the next year, you will receive emails from the committee asking you to volunteer to lead and plan the following events:
• Regional Roundtable in your city with a General Counsel or Managing Partner in February 2016
• Graduation Happy Hour for the 2015 Fellows in April 2016
