It is the time of year when we ask our members to vote for our new cohort of Lawyers Club board members. Our board members are the backbone of the organization who ensure that engaging and valuable programming fulfills our mission and values. I have found serving on the board as an especially rewarding experience. Our board members are talented women who devote countless hours of their time and inspire others to continue to carry the torch of the fight for equality.
I have no doubt that our current candidates for the board are equally accomplished and will be just as engaged. The candidates offer a wide array of experiences that will add to the strengths of our current board. We are grateful that such an impressive group has agreed to continue to run during these difficult times. Given the time and energy expended by these wonderful women, I encourage everyone to take time to learn about each of the candidates who will electronically circulate their credentials for your consideration. Our elections open on April 1 and will close at 5:00 pm on May 1, 2020, and can be completed by mail or electronically. Please make sure to VOTE!
