First and foremost, thank you to the 2015-2016 Executive Committee led by Myisha Tilson, Esquire as well at the brilliant and accomplished leaders that preceded her. Since 1981, you have mentored, guided, led, dragged, cheered, buoyed and boosted one another to positions of power in this City. Your shoulders have been leaned upon for aid, support and tears as you are most intimate with the trials and tribulations endured by women and women of color in and out of the workforce. It is you that made and kept this organization a vital part of the Philadelphia legal community. The legacy will continue.


On Saturday, November 12, 2016, the WLD is holding its annual elections for the Executive Committee. Ballots have been emailed to dues paying members. If you are current with your dues but have not received a ballot, please send an email to correspondingsecretary@nbawldphila.org.


Elections will be held, at 11:00 am, before the General Body Meeting. The slate of candidates will be available to answer questions prior to the casting of the ballot.


Tilson will hold her last WLD General Body Meeting as President immediately after the vote. After the WLD General Body Meeting, the newly elected President will outline her goals during her administration. Volunteers for non-officer positions will be accepted at that time. This will be an exciting time.


We look forward to seeing you. We look forward to hearing you. We look forward to effecting change by working together.
