I’ve been with NL for over 14 years now, and my role has evolved into one that is more Attorney Member focused. My mission at this conference was to meet as many NL members as possible and have one-on-one conversations that would help me learn more about them and their firms – what they are focused on now, what their goals are going forward, and how NL can help them do a better job of marketing their firms more effectively.
My experience at this CLLA Conference—only my second—was nothing short of fantastic. Everyone made me feel welcome—like I was with friends and family. During my career at NL, I have probably spoken to every NL Law Firm Member a hundred times on the phone, but to finally meet some of them in person, and to be treated like they just saw me yesterday, was such a wonderful feeling.
The conference had great sessions for CLE credits such as Multi-Party Litigation Nightmares; Legal Ethics and the Practice of Collection Law; Hidden Liens: What You Don’t Know May Hurt You; Gaming Collections and Bankruptcy, just to name a few.
I helped to organize the Professional Women in Collections and Call Center Industries (PWCI) cocktail hour held on Thursday. The event allowed women in the CLLA to network and share ideas with their peers. Participating in this event was an honor and a very worthwhile experience. We had a great group of women join us, and we were surprised by impromptu visits from CLLA 2014-2015 President Barry Gammons, as well as President-Elect Bob Bernstein. There were three sponsors for the event: Lori J. Frank PC (MI), Gaba Law Group (CA) and CLLA.
Closing out my conference experience was the Attorney/Agency Networking event. It is always a great way to connect with more law firm members and agencies.
There are always more people to connect with then I have time for, so if I missed the opportunity to sit down with you at CLLA, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 701.425.0987. Even if it has to be over the phone, I look forward to learning more about you and your firm!
