Make The Most of Your NABFEME Membership!

I have always been a firm believer in the power of networking.  You meet people who often morph into friends, colleagues, mentors and even clients!  Networking is a core characteristic  of NABFEME and it is just one of the ways you can get the most out of your membership.

Here are some things to consider, or some things you can do to help increase your visibility amongst our membership and professional community:

1.  Complete your member profile!  Upload your logo or your photo!  Complete the short bio!  Tell us how wonderful you are and what you do!  Give other members a reason to connect with you!

2.  Attend meetings, educational programs, mixers and networking events!  Get out and meet people, learn about new industry trends and find opportunities to work together.  Some of the best deals are made away from the office! 

3.  Join a committee, a task force or team effort!  I know everyone is busy with hectic schedules... but the best way to grab some new business is to be a part of something.  When you volunteer, you often meet other great women who may need you and your professional services.

4.  Sponsor an event, meeting or gathering!  Don't run and hide your purse... there are a variety of ways to do this whether its a physical meeting, event or a virtual concept.  Your sponsorship can come in the way of support and participation, be creative.  And the best part will be seeing your company get the exposure in front of your colleagues and industry peers.

5.  Think outside YOUR box!  Just because you are an entertainment lawyer doesn't mean every client has to be a musician or athlete. Expand your thinking, look for opportunities to connect in other industries like fashion, publishing, culinary arts, health & fitness, finance, etc.... take a chance on a different kind of opportunity that may give you growth in a "new" market.
