All YLD Members Welcome to Share Thoughts, Suggestions at YLD Live!, July 27

PHILADELPHIA - On Monday, July 27, at 12 p.m., all members of the Philadelphia Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division are welcome to attend YLD Live!, an interactive meeting where YLD members can express their thoughts on YLD programs and operations and how the Division can best benefit them.

Whether it is an idea for a program or event that would help young lawyers, a topic best addressed in a CLE or panel discussion, or an idea for a program in the Philadelphia community, the YLD wants to hear from its membership. Young lawyers shape the future of the profession; the YLD and its Executive Committee encourage all members to attend YLD Live! to weigh in on how young lawyers can continue to make an impact in the Philadelphia community.

Attendees can also expect to learn important information on the YLD, such as:

- The history of the YLD, its structure, and its mission
- How the YLD can benefit you through its programs and initiatives
- How to get involved with the YLD through social media
- Advice/suggestions if affected by the economic downturn
- Upcoming YLD events

Attendees will also break into groups for a more personal discussion. Cabinet members will lead these groups and answer questions as well as keep track of suggestions, opinions, etc., for future follow-up.

The YLD will also be auctioning off four $25 gift certificates to the Mexican Post at the event.

YLD Live! will be held at the Philadelphia Bar Association's headquarters, 1101 Market St., in the 11th Floor Conference Room. Click here to register.
