A Letter From Your Section Chair

  • September 05, 2019

Welcome to the 2019/2020 OBA year! As this year's Chair of the OBA's Women Lawyers Forum (WLF) Section, I am looking forward to working with you and hopefully meeting or hearing from you throughout the year. I'd also like to personally invite you to renew your section membership for the upcoming year.

Not only is section membership for the WLF free, but it is also a chance to join some of the most engaged members of the OBA in our vision and mission of advancing equality and opportunities for women in the profession. It is also a valuable opportunity to forge lasting relationships with like-minded individuals that will contribute to our continued success.

Plus, as an OBA Section member, you can complete up to 6 of the substantive hours you need for your mandatory CPD requirement – for FREE – with your exclusive access to archived professional development programming. 

This year, I invite you to join in and have your voice heard by participating in the development of our continuing education programs, authoring articles for our section’s web page or by contributing to policy advocacy in the interests of our section and for the profession as a whole.

If you haven't already, please be sure to re-enroll in Sections for the upcoming membership year to make sure you don't miss out on any of this year's exciting initiatives.

I look forward to representing the OBA's Women Lawyers Forum this year, and hope to meet you at some of our events.
