Note from the Editor: A ready-made opportunity for you to network!
One networking strategy identified in the “Seek Power: A Women Lawyer’s Guide to Self-Promotion” article above by Committee member Emily Masalski, is—write and publish an article. At the risk of stating the very obvious—this strategy can easily be accomplished by all our members and readers by submission of an article or item of interest to this very newsletter or any other ISBA newsletters (there are approximately 25). For many years now the Women and the Lawyer Committee has continued to meet it goal of publishing four editions of The Catalyst Newsletter each Bar year—typically our newsletter comes out in September, December, March and June. The remaining deadlines for submission of articles for consideration by this Committee for the 2009/2010 Bar year are February 15, 2010, and May 15, 2010. Our newsletter focuses on issues impacting women lawyers and women and families generally. This allows for writing on a vast range of subject matter and topics. Anyone interested in learning more about getting published in The Catalyst newsletter should contact the editor of this edition, Vice-Chair of the Women in the Law Committee, Sandra Crawford, at (312) 726-8766 or firstname.lastname@example.org. ■
