Development Update


We are more than half-way to our Sponsorship target for this year thanks to the tremendous efforts of the NAMWOLF staff team members Yolanda Coly and Jane Kalata, and dedicated law firm and in-house counsel members of the National Development Committee who have reached out to or sought to make contacts at potential corporate and vendor sponsors. A big thanks to the corporations, vendors, and NAMWOLF law firms that have already agreed to be sponsors this year!

We still have a ways to go to reach our sponsorship goal before the September Annual Meeting, and we can use your help. If you have contacts at companies or vendors that you think can benefit from being part of NAMWOLF and support NAMWOLF’s mission, reach out and invite them to attend the Annual Meeting and become a sponsor. If your company or law firm has not yet signed up to sponsor, do so. Sponsorship is a great opportunity to support NAMWOLF’s mission and to show your brand and presence to NAMWOLF’s ever expanding network of in-house counsel, law firms, and vendors. How often do you get the opportunity to show your brand to an audience of over 650 in-house counsel and law firm attorneys who may be looking for exactly what your company or law firm has to offer?

Sponsorship opportunities are available at a variety of levels and for many, two or more sponsors can join together. A few of the sponsorship opportunities are: thumb drives refreshment breaks, and dinners that will be attended by the more than 650 expected in-house and law firm attendees; your company or law firm signage and logo on USB drives given to all attendees; and conference bag inserts. A complete list is available here.

If you would like to sponsor or would like to support our development efforts, contact Yolanda Coly at, or Jane Kalata at, or John M. Murdock, Chair of the National Development Committee at

Thanks for your support!
