The NALP Annual Education Conference Planning Committee is delighted to invite you to join us in San Francisco for the highlight of our professional year! The 2017 conference will offer inspirational and innovative programming plus exciting networking opportunities. Whether you are looking to revitalize your daily routine or to take your career to the next level, there is much in store for our members in SF (please don’t call it Frisco). Highlights of the 2017 conference include:
Over 100 Concurrent Sessions.
Our colleagues and professional consultants will share their knowledge on a wide range of timely and significant topics. There are sessions for attendees at all stages of their careers, from newcomers to veterans and everyone in between. New to our conference in 2017 - NALP will host our own version of TED Talks called NALPnext. We are excited to have NALP members present short engaging talks on ideas worth sharing about the future of careers and the legal profession.
Dr. Christine Carter, a happiness expert, will inspire us to achieve more by doing less. Combining scientific research and practical application, Dr. Carter offers a way to thrive and live life from our “sweet spot” a place of power and ease. Guillermo Mayer, President and CEO of Public Advocates will challenge us to take a critical look at diversity within our organizations. Mr. Mayer will share his personal story as a Latino immigrant who now leads a national nonprofit legal organization that protects the rights of others. On Friday, we will explore the intersection of law and technology and the unique role women play here in the Bay Area.
Many Formal and Informal Networking Opportunities.
There will be no shortage of opportunities to engage with your colleagues throughout the conference. We’ve created a two hour window for you to enjoy lunch on your own in San Francisco. Whether its sushi, chowder in a sourdough bread bowl or a locally harvested, sustainable meal, there is no shortage of delicious options at your doorstep. Our conference hotel in Union Square provides attendees with access to shopping, street cars, museums and the historic waterfront featuring AT&T Park and the Ferry Building. Evening activities include Tuesday night’s Open House and Welcome Reception and Resource Center Grand Opening, Wednesday’s Regional Receptions and Member Celebration at the amazing California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park, and Thursday’s Diversity and Inclusion Reception.
Don’t forget to have your new head shot taken in the Resource Center and plan time to reenergize with yoga or barre in the mornings. On behalf of the planning team, it has truly been our pleasure to serve the membership and we hope you’ll join us in April in my adopted home - beautiful, friendly, and diverse San Francisco.
