Greetings, WRBLSA Family!

I am honored and excited to serve as you​r​ 2015-​​2016 Western Regional Chair!

When I came to law school, BLSA was the first organization that made me feel at home. The connections I have made through WRBLSA have been invaluable. I have found friends who have become family, made memories that I will never forget, and even ​received amazing job opportunities! I will work hard to ensure that each of you have the same experiences in BLSA.

This year, our theme is “Winning the West: Creating Strong Advocates and Future Leaders.” This organization exists to increase the number of culturally responsible Black attorneys who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community. In the West, we will focus our efforts and resources on these three areas to help fulfill the mission of this organization.

Your regional leadership team is committed to following the national theme of “Building a Better BLSA” at every chapter. We recognize that we are not succeeding as a regional or national organization if we are not successfully engaging with our chapters. Thus, the Regional Board is committed to working closely with your chapter leaders to provide the support you need.

We have ​ many great events planned this year, such as our Chapter Leadership Retreat, Academic Retreat, Job Fairs, Sub-Regional Roundtables, and our Regional and National Convention. Your presence at these events is critical. Join us, and experience the powerful spirit of NBLSA!

W​e are​ here to help! Please don’t hesitate to reach out ​to ​let us know how we can be of assistance. My inbox is always open​,​ and I sincerely enjoy hearing from you. I look forward to a great year and “Winning the West” with all of you.

In WRBLSA Love and Service,

Christyn Richardson
