What's Happening: Calendar Of Events


The proposed new name of our "future" organization was unveiled last Friday: LawVantage - Your business of law society.  More information will be forthcoming this year with chapters voting in early 2016; however, you can see the video and other relevant data under the Announcements section of our website.  Full implementation is anticipated to be January 2017.  Here is the logo: 

Nancy Pugh, our chapter's President-Elect, and Cherie Heintz, our Community Connections Chair, attended the ALA CLI (Chapter Leadership Institute) Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan recently.  The theme of the conference was Bold & Fresh.  See photo below with Nancy and Cherie with Oliver Yandle, Executive Director of ALA:

We hope you and your attorneys can join us at our August and September meetings.  The August meeting is a panel discussion to understand corporate General Counsels and what they want and expect from law firms. The September program is about Cyber Security and Risks, and is certified for one hour of CLE credit!  

We have a new committee chair!  Please welcome Anne Henkel as our new Communications chairperson.  Anne will replace Jen Doyle.

Last, just a reminder that your Board is meeting in early August for a marathon planning session - to map out the programs, speakers and venues for 2016.  Your input is important!  If you haven't done so yet, please complete the survey sent out by Nancy a few weeks ago to help us provide meaningful education to you and your firms next year.

All the best,

Jill Shugart, President Richmond ALA
