Affinity Groups

MWL Affinity Groups consist of members who form a group, consistent with MWL’s mission, to advance a common interest (legal or non-legal), professional goal, or with the intent to network and promote collegiality.

 

Affinity Groups often:
· Promote further satisfaction in the practice of law.
· Provide individual professional development opportunities.
· Promote the sharing of resources and the exchange of ideas.
· Emphasize networking, connection, community and relationship building.

 

Affinity Groups are offered as a benefit of MWL membership. Affinity Groups may or may not be designed to directly address MWL's core strategic priorities. However, Affinity Groups are viewed as a vital and valuable opportunity for member participation, networking, connection and/or support.

 

Are you interested in learning more about an affinity group or being added to an affinity group email list? Feel free to contact Hannah at hzuercher@mwlawyers.org or one of the group leaders listed below.

If you would like further information about current Affinity Groups or forming a new group, please refer to Creating an MWL Affinity Group and/or contact Executive Director Debra Pexa.
