51ST NBLSA NATIONAL CONVENTION
Greetings NBLSA Family,
I am humbled and grateful to serve as your National Convention Coordinator for the 51st National Convention. As a native of Little Rock, I'm excited to welcome you to my home as we embark upon this momentous convention.
The diversity, eccentricity, and pulse of this city are unmatched, and it’s just what we need to celebrate fifty-one years of leadership, service, and advocacy. It’s an exciting time for us, as we are consistently growing and adapting, yet remaining true to our mission to “increase the number of culturally responsible Black and minority attorneys that excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community."
This year, we are excited to bring programming that will be both innovative and engaging in new ways. As we hone into NBLSA's National Theme "Shifting the Paradigm: Envisioning the Next 50 Years," we are truly excited to usher into a new era of NBLSA as we lead our organization forward.
Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you in March!
