CMCP Member Primary Contacts: Keep your organization’s contact information, practice areas and minority attorney lists up to date.
Minority Attorney Members: Keep your individual attorney profile current. If you don’t have an individual attorney profile, create it today. Click here for details on how to create one.
Attend CMCP Events
Every CMCP event is an opportunity to connect with new people and networks. Attendees, both in-house and outside counsel, come expecting to meet high quality attorneys who value diversity and inclusion.
Set a goal to meet at least 5 new people at every event. Business and job opportunities come from all sources – sometimes from in-house counsel seeking outside counsel for work, but also from law firm colleagues, referrals from someone in-house to a colleague in another company, and referrals from CMCP staff.
Write an Article
Submit an article for publication in CMCP’s E-Newsletter – a great way for your peers, clients and prospects see your published work. Click here for details.
Volunteer for a Subcommittee or for an Ad-Hoc Committee
Volunteer for one of CMCP’s existing subcommittees. Click here for details.
Volunteer to be considered for CMCP Ad Hoc Committees formed from time to time to undertake specific projects.
Be a CMCP Program Speaker
Send CMCP information on the areas of expertise about which you are qualified to speak. Include information about past speaking engagements on the topic. If you have a good panel idea, bring it to CMCP with details on its structure, realistic potential speakers and possible venues.
Send CMCP Your Success Stories
Let us promote your successes in CMCP e-Bulletins, the e-Newsletter and/or on our website.

Much of the member news published in CMCP eBulletins, eNewseltters, website and social media is received directly from our members. Some member news is periodically selected by CMCP as we find it in other publications recognizing members for their achievements.

Our priorities for selecting success stories for publication include:

  • News specifically about CMCP or our members that is of particular interest to the CMCP community.

  • In accord with CMCP’s mission, we emphasize the successes of minority attorney members. Celebrating the successes of entire member organizations such as law firms or corporate legal departments, particularly as it relates to achievements in diversity, is also something CMCP does routinely through programs such as an annual recognition of minority attorneys in California elevated to partner, and saluting member firms and companies recognized as diversity leaders.

  • CMCP will highlight our members’ successes as much as we can within our  capacity. In fairness to all our members, we may limit the number of mentions of a particular member organization or individual attorney within a given period of time.

  • News that is time sensitive may be posted above events that will happen later.
Sponsor or Host a CMCP Event
Be an Annual Program Sponsor, an Annual Business Conference Sponsor or sponsor/host a specific CMCP event. Click here for sponsor/host benefits & details.
Annual Business Conference
Attend the conference & take advance of 1-1/2 days filled with opportunities to connect - through Corporate Connections interviews and otherwise. Connections are made & business/job opportunities are created during the entire conference, so come prepared to meet new people everywhere - in the hallways, at the receptions, riding the elevators.
Law Firms & Corporations: Include associates and junior partners, and non-managing attorneys, among those you send. A number of conference programs focus on professional development and connections for younger attorneys. Let CMCP help you in your business development efforts.
In-House Counsel: Send attorneys from your company to participate in Corporate Connections (conference registration is free for in-house attorneys who do these interviews). Encourage your attorneys to attend the entire conference. The professional development activities and connections made during the entire conference are as important to in-house counsel as law firm attendees.
Use CMCP as your Primary Referral Source for Attorneys of Color
Whether to find outside counsel for specific work in a specific geographical region, to find new candidates for open job positions, or to find the right attorneys to provide a CLE program for your in-house law department tailored to your specific needs.
