September's LBMD Virtual Monthly Meeting  

Please Note: We continue with virtual meetings to permit folks to continue to gather to share and discuss leadership issues and successful solutions of the changing environment. The China Virus continues to present a challenge for face-to-face meetings and the guidance about proper preventative actions continues to change, and often confuse. With this soupy mix of variables, continuing the meetings in a virtual mode makes sense for now.

As the health situation brightens and plans continue to evolve and expand for businesses phasing back to more normal operations, Shulman Rogers will reopen their offices in a manner to ensure the safety for employees, clients, and guests - they have indicated that the LBMD will be invited retuen to their wonderful conference center as things normalize once again. To add a bit of stability to
our environment, virtual monthly LBMD meetings will continue through the end of 2020, however, we will continue to monitor the changing situation and make appropriate changes toward the "New Normal".

Communicating in 
       a Two-Dimensional
             Virtual World

The COVID-19 virus has thrust all of us into a two-dimensional virtual world ruled by Zoom, Webex, GoToMeeting and a myriad of other vendors introducing their video conferencing platforms.  

We are all facing a hybrid in-person/virtual presentation world for the foreseeable future.  

It behooves us to find out how to best use video conferencing platforms.

In facilitating this topic, Frank DiBartolomeo will describe the various virtual communication methods (they’re not all video platforms).

Together in groups we will discuss our experience with the pros and cons of virtual communication. 

Building on this base Frank will provide numerous, practical, and immediately usable ways to enhance our virtual presentations using the Zoom video conferencing platform, making them more effective and 'less clunky'. 

This is a pertinent, timely, and revenue-enhancing session you will not want to miss!

Resolutionary Thinking
Focusing on solutions. Thinking creatively and tenaciously about outcomes. About what’s in your best interests. Getting matters resolved, so you can get on with what matters to you. That’s resolutionary thinking. And that’s made Shulman Rogers,  P.A., one of the largest, most respected law firms in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

In 1972, Shulman Rogers was founded on a commitment to client service. Today, the firm’s roster of highly skilled attorneys and other dedicated staff members are all guided by that same commitment. A client-first approach. A smart, efficient practice. A relentless focus on problem-solving. And an underlying compassion—for our clients and our community. It all adds up to resolutionary thinking. The kind of thinking you can count on from the people of Shulman Rogers.
