Last Saturday we had our Winter Leadership retreat with our Board, Staff and Co-Chairs! Each Lawyers Club year we have two leadership retreats, Summer and Winter, where we come together to connect, receive an organizational update and plan for the next half of the Lawyers Club year. While both leadership retreats in 2020-2021 have been virtual, the retreats nonetheless invigorated our leadership, all of whom are volunteers except the staff. 

There is no doubt in my mind that without our amazing volunteers, Lawyers Club could not advance the status of women in the law and society—especially  in a year like no other because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Working with the staff, our volunteers are a true testament of Margaret Mead’s words, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”  

Without our volunteers Lawyers Club could not be of Service to our members, sponsors, and community. 

Without our volunteers we could not continue to lead in creating Inclusion for all whether it is by race, ethnicity, gender, practice area, years in practice, or role in the legal profession. 

Without our volunteers we could not Advocate and participate in movements that ensure women’s rights continue to move forward toward gender, social, racial, and economic equality, and equity.

Our phenomenal volunteers are the true strength of the Lawyers Club Team. Their commitment is 100% as is evident through the sentences and words you see in today’s e-blast. I hope their words inspire you and remind you that Lawyers Club is here for you 100%.
