Stacy R. Horth-Neubert
WLALA President 2016-2017
January 2017 promises to bring lots of change to our great nation. This month, it gives me great pleasure to focus one very positive change: a major new pilot project in which the WLALA Foundation will collaborate with Inner City Law Center's Homeless Veterans Project to provide pro bono services to veterans, most of whom will be women, and to sponsor a summer fellowship for a student who will focus on women's veterans' issues. I can think of no better way to set the tone for 2017 than this collaboration in which WLALA will serve those who have bravely served our country. This project is Right Where You Belong in 2017.
The ICLC-WLALA Foundation pilot project is the culmination of almost two years of work by the WLALA Foundation Strategic Planning Committee, formed and led by Past President Jennifer Romano. The Strategic Planning Committee was created with the goal of increasing the impact of the Foundation through a review and revamping of the structure, financial strength, and programs of the Foundation. The Strategic Planning Committee has been hard at work, and in January 2017, the Foundation Board will vote on (i) significant amendments that will be bring our bylaws up to date with current practice and governing law, and (ii) to retain a new financial advisor to assist the Foundation is maximizing the impact of its assets. But undoubtedly the most exciting development coming out of the Strategic Planning Committee is the ICLC-WLALA Foundation collaboration.
