Darleene Peters and Skylar Rudin attended the National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) Annual Meeting and Law Firm Expo, held in New York City, September 17-20, 2017.
The NAMWOLF meeting didn’t disappoint! Darleene and Skylar were able to participate in informal networking activities, such as a scavenger hunt throughout the City that Skylar helped organize. The event was hosted by the Emerging Leaders Initiative (ELI), on which our very own Skylar serves as a member of the ELI Board and as the Co-Chair of the Networking/Business Development Committee. She also received recognition for her efforts during the General Session of the Annual Meeting.
Darleene was a first-time attendee at the meeting and participated in the First Time Attendee Orientation where she learned more about NAMWOLF, met the NAMWOLF Team, and other colleagues. She also attended the Law Firm Cross Marketing Session on Trust and Relationship-Building and engaged in interactive exercises with other attendees to learn the importance of connections and trust in building your professional network.
All of the sessions and receptions provided opportunities to enlighten, network, and engage all attendees. Another highlight of the meeting was the Law Firm Expo, which allowed attorneys from various practice settings and locations the opportunity to further network with in-house counsel, various legal association members, and other attorneys in private practice, in an effort to assist with building their professional networks and practices.
KPW is proud to be a NAMWOLF Member with legal expertise in several practice areas, and is one of three Louisiana Law Firm NAMWOLF Members.
