Encouraging and Establishing Ally Law’s Next Generation
Younger lawyers are, quite naturally, focused on building their careers and client bases. To help ensure the future of Ally Law, we need to help them make the connection between participation in our network and the growth of their practices and firms. Additionally, such lawyers — with their networks of next-generation business leaders — often have their fingers on the pulse of today’s issues.
With this in mind, starting in 2020 we proposed the establishment of a fund to waive the registration fees of younger lawyers attending their first Ally Law regional or annual general meeting. We will encourage these attendees to take an active role at the meetings, serving as panelists or moderators for sessions at our meetings
We will also hold a special program for younger lawyers at the 2020 AGM, on Wednesday, May 20th, focused on business development and networking. It is my hope that this helps establish the next generation of Ally Law delegates and leaders.
Over the next several months, as we gather for our regional meetings in Grand Rapids, Hong Kong and Malta, let’s take this opportunity to brainstorm new ways to engage our younger colleagues in Ally Law — and in our collective future.
