As we kick off 2023, I would like to take a brief moment to share how honored and humbled I am to serve as the 2023 LMA Southwest Region President. When I first started in legal marketing, I never would have thought serving in a leadership role was a possibility. I feel fortunate to be taking the reins of a region that has seen such amazing success over the years as a result of steadfast and dedicated leadership. I hope to continue this streak as your region president.
Looking back at 2022, we proved once again why we are the “SouthBEST” region. Our recent Regional Conference in Dallas was a huge success because of our volunteer leaders, our incredible sponsors, and our members that took time out of their busy lives to attend. Thank you again to everyone that played a role in executing this event.
The Southwest Region remains as strong as ever. We continue to grow our membership, attract amazing leaders, both on the Board of Directors and at the local level, execute top-notch programming, but most of all, remain dedicated to our mission of providing value to our members.
For 2023, I challenge each of you to make the most out of your membership by getting involved. 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 am excited for all that is to come this year and hope you are too!
