The Programming Committee is charged with creating and coordinating the annual programming schedule for the Coalition, including (a) an event every 6-8 weeks for Coalition members from “brown bag” telephonic events to formal in-person events; (b) one more expansive annual in-person event open to all member firms, law departments and individual members; and (c) networking opportunities and events for Coalition members. The Committee often invites speakers or other guests to speak at the programming events to educate the members on various legal, business, leadership and professionalism topics. In addition, the Committee liaises with other committees (e.g., Membership, PR, etc.) to increase awareness of the Coalition in general, to advertise upcoming events, and to post information regarding or summaries about past events. Our goal is to make the Coalition’s programming valuable, relevant and engaging for all members of the Coalition.
