Journal of Legal Nurse Consulting Summer 2022: President's Update
Dear members and readers,
I am writing this letter on April 18, 2022, just ten short days before our Annual Forum 2022. I am not quite the President of AALNC, and yet I am writing this President’s Letter in anticipation of a great Forum and an exciting year for our organization.
You will be reading this approximately 6 weeks after the Forum. I hope that attending Forum 2022 helped you plan your year ahead. Did you connect with in-house LNCs who love their jobs? Did you have coffee with an independent LNC who would not change a thing? Did you share a snack with a life care planner, and you had no idea there was such a thing? Legal nurse consulting is multi-faceted. There are so many ways to bring your skills to the table.
I hope when you attended Forum you engaged with our vendors. Did you learn about new products? Did you find something that could help you be more productive? If you have a need that was not met at the Forum, we want to know about it. One goal as an organization is to provide you with as many tools as possible to help you be successful. Let us know what we can do better.
I always leave Forum feeling energized. I’ve found, over the years, that the trip home from Forum is a good time to set new goals. AALNC helps me meet my professional goals while the education inspires me to be flexible about my methods for reaching those goals. Networking has shown me there are so many ways to achievement!
AALNC is known as the “professional home for LNCs.” I hope at Forum, you found your “family.” After I attended my first Forum in 2011, I was motivated to become more involved in AALNC. Volunteering was a new process for me. It helped me learn how our organization functions “behind the scenes.” The relationships I made through volunteering steered my success and those relationships are now, indeed, family to me. As Susan Carleo said in 2016, “I volunteered my way up the chain of command.” I am delighted to be the 2022-2023 AALNC President and I look forward to working with all of you during the next year. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
