2019 VLSAA Board of Directors Nominees

At large Director Nominee

Lauren Isaacoff JD'08

Lauren Isaacoff JD'08 What is your vision for VLS in the next five years?
Stronger faculty, student body and alumni network.

What skills do you bring to the VLSAA to accomplish these priorities?
I am Committed to the growth of VLS in both securing accomplished and long term faculty, growth of the student body and of the alumni networks.

How would you galvanize the energy and enthusiasm of alumni to increase participation in VLS events and giving?
It is a challenge, but I certainly have tried to get alumni involvement in New York City and Philadelphia. I have personally emailed all of the alumni on regional lists inviting them to events and I think that's important. Rather than a stock email from the school, asking fellow alumni to join or participate in an event generally garners responses.

List and describe your alumni service.
Part of planning committee for Class of 2008 ten year reunion, contributions to alumni board and involvement in New York City and Philadelphia

  • Similar to my passion for the VLS community, I am passionate about my community now. I want to ensure the growth and development of both are moving in the right directions.

Having reviewed the standing committees on the VLSAA Board, which committee(s) would you choose to serve on and why?

  • Regional Groups Committee—I feel I already participate in supporting networking and connection among alumni in my geographic areas
  • Nominating Committee
