Spring Fling Recap

LLAM members gathered at Westminster Hall in Baltimore for the 2019 Spring Fling and Officer Installation and enjoyed a fajita bar lunch buffet, catered by Zannino’s. Thank you to Simon Canick for planning this event!

Jason Hawkins thanked the 2018-2019 Board Members, Committee Chairs, and members for their contributions to LLAM, and announced LLAM’s newly elected officers for the 2019-2020 year.  In LLAM’s April election, Chi Song was elected Vice President/President Elect, Tanya Thomas was elected Treasurer, and Bijal Shah was elected as a Board Member.

Simon Canick, incoming President, also addressed the group and provided a brief teaser for the upcoming year. This includes the LLAM Dine Around on Saturday, July 13th and LLAM’s Legal Research Institute on Friday, October 11th. Watch this blog and your email for additional information about both events!

Jason Hawkins passes the lamb to Simon Canick, incoming LLAM President.
