Hello CALL members!
It seems like we were just at the May Business Meeting, but we blinked and here we are in September already! For CALL and the legal community, September is always a period of new starts — new students, new attorneys, new committees, and me, the new President of CALL! As we start what I hope will be another great year at CALL, I want to take time to thank all the members who stepped up to the siren song of committee work. We have a great roster of Committee Chairs and new committee members. As always, we are an organization of volunteers, and I greatly appreciate the many hours our members dedicate to create the educational programming, social events, networking, and service that define our organization. To our new(er) members who want to be involved and don’t know where to start, there’s still time to join a committee or reach out for a mentor. Drop me a line, I’m happy to chat!

Dear CALL Colleagues:
This is my fifth and final President’s message to you (including the one bonus message from last year), because during the May CALL business meeting at Petterino’s, I passed the gavel to Jessie LeMar. We can all rest easy knowing that our association (and the gavel) will be in her capable hands for the upcoming year.
I want to take one final opportunity to thank the Board members, committee chairs, and committee members for volunteering their time to make this an eventful and productive CALL year. Here are some of the highlights from 2018-19: Continue reading President’s Letter
Dear CALL Colleagues:
The daylight hours are getting shorter, the weather is turning colder, and the tension from looming final exams is starting to creep into the atmosphere within the walls of our law schools. There’s no question that we find ourselves in the middle of the fall/winter holiday season. In this letter, I want to focus on the fall holiday that I feel exemplifies the traits of CALL members: Thanksgiving.

As temperatures get chillier and we enter the holiday season, this is a good time to reflect on the accomplishments of CALL and its members during warmer months!
Since the beginning of the 2013-2014 CALL term, the CALL Board has had the pleasure of meeting with each of the committee chairs to discuss our goals for the year and our plans to move forward with the CALL 2011-2016 Strategic Plan. Many of our committee chairs are first-time chairs, and I’m happy to see that all of the committees have started to make significant strides moving forward on their ambitious agendas.
Halfway into the Strategic Plan, we have made great progress. An annotated version of the CALL Strategic Plan, updated with our progress as of May 2013, is available as an appendix to the Board’s September 2013 minutes. You will continue to receive annual updates on our Strategic Plan at the beginning of every CALL term. Continue reading Winter 2014 President’s Letter
