This time of year continues to remind us all of the blessings that we have been privileged to receive. The ability to pay it forward and impact the lives of those less fortunate than us is one of the tenets of being an LCLD Fellow. If you would like to help us make this holiday season a happier one for the kids at Lydia Home, please notify 2012 Fellow Gerard Gregoire at mgrey@allstate.com for more information. Gift cards and toys will be collected at the upcoming Midwest Fellows Holiday Event in downtown Chicago on Friday, December 16, at Bar Salud. If you plan to attend, please notify Gerard Gregoire and 2013 Fellow Jason DeJonker at jason.dejonker@bryancave.com.  

PAY IT FORWARD: Encourage Members to Participate in 2017 Programs

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. We’re accepting 2017 Fellow nominations and 2017 Pathfinder selections through January 13, 2017.

For questions about the Fellows Program or the Pathfinder Program, please contact Lori Lorenzo, LCLD Program Director. 

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 ygatling@littler.com or 713.652.4740. We look forward to seeing each of you there. 


LCLD Fellows Alumni from classes 2011-2016 are invited to attend the Sixth Annual LCLD Fellows Alumni Leadership Symposium from Thursday, June 1, to Saturday, June 3, in New York City. The agenda, hotel, and conference registration information will be available here in February 2017. If you have questions, please contact Courtney Nolde, LCLD Fellows Alumni Program Manager.
