This week we are launching a bi-monthly series entitled Getting to know…. The goal of this series is to introduce you to the LLAW Executive Board and get you thinking about volunteer opportunities within your association. First up…Maureen Burns, current LLAW President.

- Briefly describe your current role and aspects you find most rewarding.
As President of LLAW it is my responsibility to guide the Association in its work for the year as well as facilitate the Board and Membership meetings each quarter. Being Association President helps me get to know more of our members and gain a deeper understanding of the work of the committees and individuals. The role also affords the opportunity to put ideas into action – see this new Getting to know… series.
- Why do you feel it is important to volunteer with LLAW?
LLAW and its members have been an invaluable resource for me, allowing for the exchange of ideas, tapping professional expertise, connecting with mentors and generally getting to know smart and kind people. Volunteering with LLAW is important so we can continue learning from each other and promoting the work we do with our employers.
LLAW President – 2021/22
