President's Message

Happy New Year! New decade, new start, new you! The best of intentions take action, resolutions take resolve, and balance requires clarity.  Our chapter cannot get you to the gym, but we can certainly provide guidance and awareness on the professional front! So, let’s resolve to make the most of 2020 and our membership. Shine brightly and let ALA help continue to kindle luminosity within your firm.

To kick things off in January, we have a great lunch and learn planned with January’s Managing Toxic Behaviors in the Workplace presented by Dr. Sharon Meit Abrahams. This luncheon also provides an opportunity to donate to Cozumel Chrysalis Group who provides scholarships and supplies to school age children to attend classes. Please bring check or cash to the meeting with your donation and every $10 donation enters you into the drawing for a pair of AirPods! January 30 is also our Business Partner Meet & Greet at Cover 3. Please join us for a drink and welcome our new and returning business partners for 2020.

February also holds our Annual Managing Partner Breakfast, so please invite your partners and register them and yourself for an insightful presentation by international author and speaker James Robbins. We will be giving partners a copy of James’s book and have three drawings for paid 2020 Austin Chapter dues for the registered members. February also will be the first Texas Statewide Retreat Cruise, which the Austin Chapter will be represented by several members!

I look forward to the adventures of upcoming events and upcoming year and wish you resolve, clarity and sparkle!
