It is my honour to serve again as your 2024 LMA Canada President. Over the past year, I’ve had the amazing privilege of working with some of the most remarkable and talented people in our legal marketing community, including our wonderful 2023 Canada Board, Local Steering Committees, and members of LMA International. Together, we were able to bring back regular in-person programming and really reconnect with our friends and peers we may have lost touch with through the pandemic. Thank you to our incredible group of volunteers who go above and beyond their already busy professional lives to guide our association to new heights.
The theme of the LMA Canada region this year will be uplift. 2023 has marked an era of tremendous change in our industry and with the economic downturn, many are facing the impacts of that change. Let’s take this year to really band together, support, and uplift each other through these tumultuous times. I encourage all members and prospective members to please reach out to your local LMA community. They are a bedrock of support, willing and able to be sounding boards, advisors, and support systems to elevate and uplift you!
With that, and now looking ahead to our future, it is my great pleasure to introduce the 2024 LMA Canada Board of Directors who are all excited to deliver another year of stellar educational programming, industry-leading communications, and community building activities for our members. Thank you in advance for your service to LMA!

New to LMA and not sure where to start? Volunteering is the best way to get involved and get connected to this awesome community, take on leadership roles, and enrich and elevate the legal marketing profession. LMA volunteers, at every stage of their career, are the foundation of our association and we hope to find a volunteer opportunity for all who express interest. Not yet a member but interested in learning more? Please feel free to reach out to me or any of the Canadian Board of Directors – we’d love to sit down with you for a coffee.
