The Drinker Biddle Alumni Network hopes you have a wonderful holiday season and a new year filled with health and happiness!

In 2015, we look forward to enhancing this community consisting of over 2,500 alumni and firm lawyers working in a myriad of industry sectors and serving a wide variety of causes. To support each other's professional success, we plan to expand the facilitation of in-person and online opportunities for peer discussion and exchange, networking, information sharing and problem solving.

The Drinker Biddle Alumni Network is privileged and honored to provide our alumni community with this secure online platform for you to take advantage of free CLEs, the searchable alumni directory, external job postings and other professional development tools. The platform also enables you to pose questions, discuss best practices and simply stay engaged with your trusted peers and former colleagues, many of whom are in similar positions facing similar challenges.

Consider these ways of staying connected, involved and invested in each other:
• Share or submit job opportunities for inclusion on the "Jobs" page.
• Volunteer to speak on a panel of alumni about lessons learned on your career path and best practices, or to speak one-on-one to associates and alumni with career related questions.
• Tell us about your latest job moves, promotions and personal milestones.
• Invite Drinker Biddle attorneys to deliver CLE programs to your in-house legal department.
• Ask questions on anything from vendor recommendations and market intelligence to best practice sharing on new undertakings. Return the favor by answering questions as well.
• Send us your feedback or suggest ways we can make the alumni network more useful for you.
• Join the Drinker Biddle Alumni LinkedIn Group.
• Let us know your ideas for topics or discussions that would be of relevance or interest to you.
• Update your alumni profile or email us your new contact information.

Thank you for your time and support this year. As always, please contact me with any questions or ideas at abby.raanan dbr.com
