It’s That Time Again!
As I write this post, well over 1500 marketers and service providers from firms and companies all over the world have begun preparing for a conference that exists solely to help them do what they do better. That conference is the LMA Annual Conference, which is March 27-29.
I always look forward to the LMA Annual Conference because this is the time I get to see my colleagues and friends, as well as meet many new people, which I love to do. We learn. We hug. We brainstorm. We share. We work hard. We do a lot in 3 days!
We all have something in common. We want to help our firms and lawyers do what they do better, too, and that is a good feeling to share. Becoming a lawyer is a very high calling, and leading and supporting lawyers so they can lead and support their clients is also a very high calling that we take seriously.
Volunteers from a dozen firms form the 2017 Annual Conference Advisory Committee, including conference co-chairs, Cynthia Voth, Director of Business Development and Administration, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn, and Paul S. Grabowski, Chief Marketing Officer, Bracewell LLP. Thanks to all of your for your selfless dedication. This is a huge endeavor and calls for a great deal of time and passion from you.
This Is A Gathering Place
As I like to do, I will collect blog posts, videos, audio and other content from this year’s conference to make it easier for anyone interested to find everything in one place.
I will add to this post as my colleagues and I publish additional content. If you see, write or produce something I haven’t found, please let me know so I can add it, okay? I will date the entries so you can quickly find new posts.
I created an easy URL, so you can either bookmark it or just remember http://bit.ly/LMA17byNancy.
