ATXConnect --April 2019 Print

President's Message

I cannot believe we are already here! April 2019 is bringing a lot with it for our Chapter. This exciting month brings the 2019-2020 membership year which includes membership renewal and a new Board! I would like to thank the outgoing board and committee members for their hard work to give us another victorious year. Big shoes to fill, but as we all know with ALA, resources and helpful folks are always around to ensure success!

Our Spring Meet and Greet on April 4 at Abel’s on the Lake is around the corner as well as the Annual Conference & Expo in Grapevine, TX April 14 – 17. Of course, we also have our monthly Lunch & Learn on April 25 that will be discussing Trust Accounts Liability with speaker Andrea Jenkinson, so keep an eye out for that invitation.

Looking forward, we have a lot to be excited about for the year! To limit myself to a few, we are developing a Past President Advisory Committee (PPAC) and I am grateful that Diane Dettmann has agreed to chair.  We are starting a Certified Legal Manager “CLM” study group led by our very own Eden Minucci, you can find out more here.  We have also been working with the other Texas Chapters and have secured the dates for a statewide retreat cruise to Cozumel, Mexico! So be sure to Save the Date!

Lastly, I want to thank you for allowing me to be part of such a wonderful group of professionals. I look so forward to sharing and learning with you.
