Simply put – The Metro New York LMA Chapter is amazing. From programming to membership to collaboration to networking to just truly enjoying being in each other’s lives – we have set the bar and set it high. Our 550+ members continue to showcase the diversity, commitment and passion that position each and every one of us to be a trusted advisor to our lawyers and colleagues.

In 2014 we packed conference rooms to listen to topics on women’s initiatives, lessons learned from other industries, GC’s deepest concerns and content marketing. We explored CRM best practices, metrics for BD & Marketing, and event spaces around the city, in addition to many other numerous topics. We raised a glass to celebrate our successes and to recognize outstanding contributions to our community and our industry. We shared, we learned, we laughed and we grew. That was #2014nylma.

So as I write this letter as my virtual hug – I hope that you have found this year as rewarding as I have. It is you, the membership, who drive this organization and make it a pleasure to serve and volunteer. So thank you! I also want to thank the board and Sue Russon, our Business Manager, for their patience, support and inspiration. It is amazing what can happen when a team is driven.

I wish all of you the best of luck ‘til our paths cross again. And remember: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Yes, Ferris Bueller, it does.
