Greetings, Northeast!

I am truly honored and humbled to serve as the 2015-2016 Northeast Regional Chair, following in the footsteps of John-Raphael Pichardo and so many others who came before me.

This year, our regional theme is “Leaving a Legal Legacy: Fostering Advocacy Through Social Consciousness. I would like to strengthen the bonds between NEBLSA and our respective communities.  As future attorneys, we must actively take a stand against the discriminatory practices that occur in policy and practice.  Strengthening these bonds requires building relationships, effective communication, and sharing knowledge. As a NEBLSA community, we must continue to work together to accomplish these goals.

If you are interested in serving in a regional position, please feel free to reach out to me directly, or click here to apply.

I look forward to having open and honest communication between each individual member, the local chapters, and the regional board.
