Academy's First Organizing Event (Oct. 2017)
In October 2017, McNamara Law Firm graciously hosted an open house event that also served to "test the waters" to see what interest was in the community for starting a Young Professionals group focused on learning and connecting across professions and practice areas.
More than 60 people attended the event, including many Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce leaders, and most attendees signed up for more information about the group.
“The group's first name included 'Young Lawyers', however, that name proved misleading because the group is open and welcoming to all professions, not just legal.”
Kate McNamara, of Fraser Stryker, invited anyone interested in taking on a leadership role to apply. Professionals, as well as professionals-in-training (students), are welcome to join.
The group's first name included 'Young Lawyers', however, that name proved misleading because the group is open and welcoming to all professions, not just legal.
For 2018, the group looks to recruit leadership, fill out membership to 50 or so members, and create a first series of events to connect and reward members. Ideas for the group are welcome by all.
