National Association for Women Lawyers Annual Meeting Host Committee

NAWL will be hosting its Annual Meeting on July 20 - 21, 2022. Joining the host committee is a great way to get to know fellow NAWL members and take on leadership opportunities that help  build skill sets and grow professionally.
The Annual Meeting is NAWL’s celebration to honor women making an impact in the profession and welcome the incoming NAWL President. We’re also hoping the 2022 Annual Meeting will be our first return to an in-person conference since the pandemic at the Hilton Chicago. Host Committee members will focus their support on one of four subcommittees; Marketing, Sponsorship, Engagement (Community Building/Networking), or Programming. Generally, Host Committee members commit about 1 hour a week to their work on the Annual Meeting (this varies by subcommittee and timeline). Host committee meetings will be scheduled monthly with a date yet to be determined for the first meeting.
Please email Chelsea Robinson, Program Manager, at crobinson@nawl.org if you are interested in joining the committee or feel free to reach out with any questions.
