Hanging Your Own Star. One Relationship at a Time.
I couldn’t begin to tell you what it means to me to have been recognized at the “Your Honor Awards” ceremony in Boston last week. My beloved trade association, the Legal Marketing Association’s New England Chapter, has always been a huge part of my professional life. I first joined in 1998 as a means to learn as much as possible about the industry I had just become a part of. The educational component of LMA is a great asset. Something that I have come to know intimately as I serve my third consecutive term as the programming chair.
But even more than the content I have encountered over the years, I find my connection to the LMANE membership has reached a much deeper level in the past 5 years or so. I developed excellent friendships and business relationships. People who know this industry and what it means to help others do what they fear most, sell their services. There is a kinship that comes along with tackling a difficult job that connects you deeply. This is why the LMA has always been important to me. My experience in this group has made me a firm believer in giving more than you take in order to be successful.
All I can say is thank you. Thank you for giving me more than public recognition. Thank you for helping me build my knowledge, network and friendships. I am incredibly honored and humbled to have been named an LMA New England Chapter Star for service to this chapter. I encourage everyone to find their ‘LMA’ and enjoy the experience!
