2016-17 Social & Networking Committee Report

Lee Robertson, Chair and Jessica Dixon, Vice-Chair

 

 

The Social & Networking Committee was formed in 2012-13 with the purpose of coordinating a variety of social and networking opportunities to promote collegiality and a cohesive membership, including the Lawyers' Luncheon Series and Holiday Party.
 
The Committee again utilized marketing techniques and personal outreach this year to drive participation from new attendees in the Lawyers’ Luncheon Series. The series garnered strong attendance at the luncheons which took place in September, October, November, February, March and April. The 2016-17 Luncheon Series included some of the following presentations and speakers:
  • Exploring NCAA Compliance featuring Queens University Athletics staff
    Judicial Candidates Forum
    Protecting the Catawba River featuring Emilee Syrewicze, Executive Director of the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation
    CLE on Responsible Transparency featuring DA Andrew Murray’s analysis of the Keith Lamont Scott case
    How Charlotte Got Segregated featuring Charlotte Historian Dr. Tom Hanchett
    Destination CLT: Building an Airport Fit for the Queen
     
The 2016 Building Dedication and Holiday Party was held at the Bar & Foundation Center. The event had a great turnout with over 300 registered to attend. The Committee looks forward to hosting another successful Holiday Party in 2017. 
 
Next year, the Committee will continue to explore and implement new networking opportunities.
