To My Fellow LMA Members,
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a safe, restful and joyous holiday season. It is the greatest honor to serve each and every one of you as your 2023 LMA Northeast Region President. And we’re going to have a fantastic year together!
The past 12 months was a period of significant progress in our region. Thanks to the extraordinary leadership of Region President Michelle Murray and Local Steering Committee Chairs Matthew Goffe (Pittsburgh), Aubrie George (Philadelphia), Lisa Murray (Boston) and William Sleight IV (New York), as well as the many volunteers at all levels of LMA’s largest region, 2022 was a major step forward in terms of engagement, activity and the rebuilding of the in-person networking experience we all value.
Highlights included welcoming new members and deeply appreciating returning ones; virtual educational programs for the entire region at no cost to members; an increase in social gatherings where many of us reconnected in person for the first time in two years; exceptional generosity from a wide array of sponsors and friends; and a return to our first regional conference in three years, which resulted in the second-highest attendance since the Northeast’s inception.
We achieved this because we did it together. No other association in our profession can match our ability to bring everyone from legal marketing, business development, research, technology, creative and communications under one tent like we can. Your enthusiasm, care, friendship and support are what has made LMA such a special community for over 30 years. And I cannot wait to see what the next 30 bring us.
But first, 2023! Stay tuned in the weeks ahead for news on programs, volunteer opportunities and more for this year. And we want to hear from you! Please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of the 2023 Northeast Region board members. This is YOUR LMA; we want to know how we can make it meaningful for you.
Please accept my best wishes for the New Year.
With warm regards,
LMA Northeast Region
2024 President Elect
