As we near the midway point of the year, let’s look at our accomplishments so far. Across the region, we’ve hosted 14 events and gained 86 new members! Thank you to all who have attended these events and helped in the planning. None of this would be possible without your dedication to this organization and the profession.
LMA Annual recently concluded, and we had a strong showing with 80 “SouthBest” members in attendance. For those who attended, it was a pleasure meeting some of you in person for the first time. I’m excited to see how we all AMPLIFY our firms, our teams, and our local groups upon returning.
Mark your calendars NOW for the 2023 LMASW Regional Conference in New Orleans on September 13-15 at The Virgin Hotel in the New Orleans Warehouse District. Registration will open soon!

For what remains of 2023, I challenge each of you to continue to make the most out of your membership by getting involved. Meet with your mentors and mentees, volunteer on a committee, host a program or social in your office. LMA is YOUR organization. Our 2023 Local Steering Committee Leaders and Regional Board of Directors are dedicated volunteer leaders and collectively, we look forward to providing you with exceptional membership value and the opportunity to grow your LMA network. I encourage you to contact any of our volunteer leaders with your suggestions or questions throughout the year.
If you are interested in volunteer opportunities for any of the committees in your LSCs or at a larger level, please email me at Bnapier@joneswalker.com.
I hope to see you in New Orleans at the LMASW Regional Conference! Laissez les bons temps rouler!
