Full disclosure: I’m on the conference committee of the Legal Marketing Association Los Angeles Chapter‘s annual Continuing Marketing Education (CME) Conference: BIG IDEAS Brought to Life. I am very proud of the conference, the quality of speakers, the topics, and I cannot wait for the West Coast premier of the Legal Mocktail presented by Catherine MacDonagh and Roberta Montafia. While I was on the LMA-LA board (2001-2004) I started this one-day conference to bring to our local members, especially our coordinators and managers, ideas from our annual conference. To see something you started in the training room at LexisNexis grow into its current incarnation is inspiring. When we say “Big Ideas” we’re not joking. In a TED-style format (1 hour topic sessions. 4 speakers @ 15 minutes.) you will hear new and inspiring ideas. With our networking breaks, you will have the opportunity to meet new people and expand upon those ideas. Thank you to all the speakers who are taking the time to come to the program and bring us such great content. Thank you to the sponsors who make it possible. Thank you to Jonathan Fitzgarrald for inviting me to join the committee. He is always so hard to say no to when he calls. I hope to see many of you there. If you cannot attend, please make sure to pass along the links to your local marketing professionals.
