New Beginnings at the Society – October Message
Earlier this month Doncaster & District Law Society’s new committee met with over 14 people in attendance a huge difference to the small handful that met in the previous months .
This represented new beginnings for the Society for what promises to be exciting times ahead . For the next year the Society will be concentrating on a theme of “Positive Membership ” . We’ll deliver that theme in everything we do as we move forward .
As part of this overall strategy we have our New Membership Officer who will be leading engagement with our existing and future members . We also will be delivering a targeted training programme with several significant stand alone events during the year which will offer members training on key specific areas by high quality presenters – this very much matches the new CPD landscape and moves away from running courses for a “points chase ” .
Socially we have our Ball early next year at a new venue in Bawtry and of course our highly popular Presidents raceday next June . But we will be going further and offering much more frequent social events for our members .
It is also vital to us to ensure we are engaging with all levels of fee earners in our legal community not just Solicitors or Trainees and we will be focussing on that .
Finally at a time of major change we will continue to drive forward our representation work and to work with local members on supporting them and also being a voice in consultations with organisations such as the SRA along with our MP’s and the National Law Society .
We will provide a further update soon . This is now a perfect time to renew your membership of Doncaster Law Society . A new chapter has started and to make it the society you want , we want to ensure we engage with as many people as possible .
