Message from our President - Brainstorming Session, save the date 13.8.2011

"Dear AWL Members,

We will be having a brainstorming session on 13 August 2011 with all members.This session is to help us all plan and strategize for the coming years, the activites or
issues that we all want AWL to be involved with. There will be an external facilitator to help us with the session. Angela Kukuthas is an activist who has conducted faciltiation processes for many organisations. We are at present working with her to draw up a Terms Of Reference for the session. She will help us asses where we are and where we want to be.

We, as members have a stake in this organisation. If we want to make
AWL relevant to us, to all women lawyers and to the community, then
we must be willing to walk the extra mile to get involved.

Having a group of Exco members working on issues or activities is
insufficient to make AWL work and to make AWL relevant and different
from the BAR. We need active participation and for those reasons at
the AGM there was a conscious effort to co-opt more members, in
particular the younger fraternity.

Please keep the date, 13 August free.Will inform you of the time and venue closer to the event. However, we would like to have a head count as to how many of you are committed to attend. This will help us source the appropriate venue.

Please respond with your name and contact number to Hope to hear from all of you positively.

Warm regards,

Meera Samanther
