Welcome to the Midwest Region

Dear Midwest Members,

What an amazing 2023 it has been, Midwest - yet we still have so many incredible opportunities to connect and learn! It’s been a pleasure for the board to get out and meet so many of you across the region - from the sold-out 2023 Midwest Regional Conference in Chicago to creative activities and socials where we could get to know each other on a different level, to trending-topic virtual programming. We’re also looking forward to holiday and year-end gatherings to celebrate all that we’ve accomplished – together.

Thank you for all that you have contributed, Midwest members, volunteers, and leaders. None of these accomplishments could be possible without you. Click here to see the latest programming across the region. Whether that is a webinar, a regional program, a mentoring coffee (iced for me!) -- we believe these are the essential ingredients to help a legal marketer grow, flourish, and exceed their personal and professional development goals. Association-wide, there is always something new here on the LMA website, where you can connect with Communities, join, and access Shared Interest Groups (SIGs), catch up on program recordings, LMA Strategies and the LMA Podcast, new complimentary content from PLI, the Body of Knowledge, and more.

I would be thrilled to hear from you and am always up for a chat. You can reach me at jlshankleton@bmdllc.com.
