I wanted to thank those of you who sent me kind comments about my Message from the Chair in the January issue of the California Labor and Employment Law Review. It has been so wonderful to hear that my message resonated with so many of you!
A new year brings new resolutions, and I’m hoping that for some of you, those include getting more involved in our Section. There are many things that you can do, including applying to join our Section’s Executive Committee, mentoring newer employment lawyers (or seeking a mentor), or attending our conferences. Information on all of these can be found below.
As always, I invite you to reach out to me if you’d like to get more involved in the Section or have ideas on how we can better serve our members.
