The Section continues to emphasize the importance of constantly innovating to facilitate member value. Recent examples include a Podcast series, a Law Student Ambassador Program, a new In-House Counsel Summit, and a revamped Fall Forum Tech Summit.
At this year’s Midwinter Meeting, we will present Committee Innovation Awards, showcasing creative programs and content from our leadership. We know that many committees are working on innovating and re-energizing committee activities. Below are some ideas:
Develop a series featuring members or quarterly videos showcasing testimonials from Antitrust Law Section Committee members.
Create a podcast with new content
Explore developing video content
Set a goal for new membership and exceed it
Provide recognition to members who recruit new members
Engage with domestic and international members to recruit new members
Create a pop quiz or similar to engage with your members
Convene an in-house, international, or young lawyer advisory board
Develop programming and other content in partnership with other Antitrust Section Committees
Publish a newsletter devoted to law student or young lawyer work
Condense earlier Spring Meeting and other Committee content into a blog post or primer
Convert a handbook into a primer suited for in-house counsel
Develop a committee-based topical content library or topic feed for constructive idea exchange in ABA Communities.
Partner with the Young Lawyers Division on content
Engage with other ABA Section Committees with overlapping coverage to partner together on a program
Develop an Essay Contest (proposals should go to the Reserves Committee)
Develop an interesting reserves project idea (above or otherwise)
Convene a mentoring supper where groups discuss topical issues (this would not be an Antitrust Law reimbursed event)
