The webinar by the AIPLA Women in IP Law Committee: “Overcoming Client Development Challenges for Women Lawyers” was a great success. We have planned our next webinar: “Engaging the Room YOUR Way” with Karen B. Kahn, Managing Partner of Threshold Advisors, LLC for September 18, 2012. However, we need your support to make this and future webinars happen. Please contact Yelena Morozova ( or Debora Plehn-Dujowich ( about sponsorship opportunities. As a sponsor, your firm name would be prominently displayed in all webinar announcements and your firm would be thanked during the webinar itself.  Thank you. Below is a short description of the webinar:

Does the avalanche of invitations to seminars, conferences, charity events, and holiday parties excite you or fill you with dread?

Hundreds of lawyers report that they find going to these events to be sheer torture and a waste of time. Many times, you don’t have a real choice – you have to go to certain events as part of your job and/or family responsibilities. Instead of focusing on the negative, can you find ways to make these events fun and productive? For example you can earn CLE credit and expand your relationship network at the same event. With many seminars, conferences and holiday events looming on the horizon, we are pleased to present a practice webinar that provides specific instruction about how attendance at gatherings can lead to the acquisition of new knowledge, relationships, opportunities and actual enjoyment.
