AWLA 2019 MARICOPA CHAPTER PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Karin Aldama Bio Photo
KARIN SCHERNER ALDAMA

Welcome to the Maricopa Chapter of the AWLA. The Chapter has over 550 members from diverse backgrounds and with practices that range from solo practioners and boutique firms to large national firms and also include public-interest and government practices. Our members enjoy networking and other opportunities and various benefits, such as attendance at members-only events, including judicial receptions organized by the Chapter, and participation at reduced rates in other events sponsored by the Chapter. A weekly email alerts our members to upcoming events and opportunities. The Chapter also provides assistance to members seeking judicial or community-leadership appointments and publicizes job openings.

Our Chapter’s monthly membership meeting and luncheon provides networking opportunities along with reasonably priced CLE, and over the year, the Chapter organizes a variety of social events including paint nights, movie screenings, outings to baseball and basketball games, professional development presentations, and small-group meetings. In addition, Chapter members have various opportunities to network with members of the three other Chapters that are part of AWLA. Many use the AWLA membership directory—available only to members—for referrals and to keep in touch.

Our Chapter’s signature event is the Annual Wine & Cheese Reception honoring the recipient of the Ruth V. McGregor award given a recipient who has furthered the mission of AWLA and diversity in the legal profession. This year’s reception will be the Maricopa Chapter’s 25th Wine & Cheese Reception, and we are planning to make it extra-special!

AWLA’s mission is to promote, and encourage the success of, women lawyers by providing members with information and support, by fostering connections among women lawyers, and by monitoring and celebrating the successes of our members and of women lawyers generally in our communities. I hope that you will join us in that mission and am looking forward to meeting you at one of our Chapter’s events.
