Welcome to the Northeast Region

A Message from the President

What an incredible nine months it has been! We are proud to share that as of August 2022, the Northeast Region has, once again, surpassed its membership goal and increased membership by 8% to 1036 members in our region. Thank you to our volunteer members who have worked hard this year to produce topical educational programming and incredible social events always designed to improve our members experience.

It was amazing to see so many people in-person. After two years of virtual gatherings, Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and New York all hosted in-person social events this summer for members to be able to re-connect with one another. Thank you to our sponsors who made these events possible.

And, most importantly, thanks to each and every one of you for your continued interest and participation in our special community. It is a tremendous honor to serve as your volunteer leadership, and we are grateful for your friendship and support.

We will be finishing this year strong. The Northeast Region has several programs planned in October including Philadelphia’s Small Firm SIG hosting a roundtable discussion on marketing, staffing and priorities post-Covid, Boston’s Experienced Marketer SIG hosting a program on promoting law firm DEI programs and New York’s 10th annual General Counsel Forum.

We need your VOTE! Thank you to the 2022 nominating committee for your hard work putting together the 2023 LMA Northeast Region Board slate. Next, we need our members to vote to ratify the slate by Friday, October 7th at 5 p.m. Please log in and vote here:

As I said in January, the LMA is your organization. Not only do we want to hear from you, we want you to get the most out of your membership by getting involved. There are lots of places to volunteer locally or at the regional level – whether you want to volunteer for the whole year or on a micro-volunteer basis. If you are interested in local volunteer opportunities for any of the committees in your LSCs, please reach out to the Chairs – Boston, Lisa Murray; New York, Willie Sleight; Philadelphia, Aubrie George and Pittsburgh, Matt Goffe.

We are excited for all that is still to come this year and hope you are too!

With warm regards,
