An Introduction from the National Chair
Dear NBLSA Family,
It is with great excitement that I bring you all greetings on behalf of the 2013-2014 National Executive Board! As the academic year begins to wind down, we are gearing up for another successful NBLSA term.
The theme for this year is Road to 50: An Evolving Legacy. The history of this organization is one filled with activism and a commitment to justice; community service, engagement and advancement; and leadership, academic and professional development. This is our legacy. As we inch closer to NBLSA's 50th Anniversary, we must continue the great work of our organization and remain steadfast in our commitment to change. However, we must also respond to the changing landscape in which we exist. We must find new ways to address the challenges facing our communities, our law students and our organization.
As we progress down this Road to 50, I invite you to join us! We will continue to bring you our Hallmark Programs including the regional job fairs, issue forums at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's Annual Legislative Conference, service trips, receptions, conventions and more. We will leverage the partnerships we have to maximize the impact of our resources in our communities and will take advantage of technology to increase access to the many opportunities presented by NBLSA. We will also begin to implement strategic plans that will ensure that the necessary structure is in place to support a celebration befitting a 50th anniversary.
I am looking forward to working alongside of all of you this year. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, or any of the National Executive Board members, with any questions, comments, suggestions, and concerns or just to say hello.
Wishing you only the best,
2013-2014 National Chair
