CDLA Renews Its Commitment to Diversity and Outreach

As the Director of Diversity and Outreach for the CDLA Board, I am pleased to announce that the Board has formally approved a renewed commitment to diversity and outreach within our organization, including the adoption of a new Diversity Mission Statement. The Board recognized that many of our members share a personal commitment to these values, and worked to identify ways in which CDLA could partner with its members to identify and support groups or organizations that fall within the scope of CDLA's stated community outreach focus.

With that in mind, the CDLA Board has approved a new process by which members can request CDLA's support of community outreach programs. View CDLA's updated Diversity Mission Statement and our new Outreach Statement, which details the purpose and scope of our Outreach focus and the support CDLA will provide to approved programs by clicking this link. Also attached is the Proposal Form to be used when a member wishes to request support from CDLA. The Form will also be available on CDLA's website and should be sent directly to me at kripplinger@frankpattersonlaw.com.
