President’s Message - May 2018

Thank you for being the beacons of light that gives our profession optimism for the future!  I keep hearing that we run an impressive organization, and it is true.  You all uplift me with your dedication and passion for the causes we uphold.  I have one more update (after this one) before I hand this organization to our President-Elect, Brian Wesley.  In the meantime, please do these things:

Let Us Know If You Want to Continue in Your Leadership Post If you have not already done so, please confirm whether or not you would like to continue in your leadership post. Write in your name, update your contact information, and indicate whether you want to continue (or not) in your position.  If you want to lead another committee, you have the chance to indicate so here.  Deadline is June 15.

Don’t Forget Our Membership Blast Email – We have the ability to send one blast email monthly to our membership (all 10,000+!!!!!) advertising your event.  Please take advantage of this advertising benefit.  Send your event to Lauren Parrish at by the 25th of each month for blasting to the membership.

Featured Fridays - We have started #FeaturedFriday, where we feature one of our volunteers. Our social media will be graced by your presence but we need your help!  Want to be featured? Contact Amanda Gregory and Christy Stierhoff. We keep it simple with name, photo, what your position is, and a fun fact. Thank you for your participation in advance!

Stars of Month - May
Sungtae Kang and Crystal Shin – Our Children and the Law Committee pulled off the second annual Legends and Leaders in the Law program in Fairfax as part of Asian American Pacific Islander History Month.  The program nearly sold out and allowed high schoolers to interact with Judge Tran, meet with law school admissions counselors, and see into a potential future career in the law. Congratulations!


All My Best-
