Due to the continued concerns and issues over COVID-19, the ALFN has made the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming WILLPOWER Summit (April 29-30, 2021, The Ritz-Carlton Dallas).

ALFN's 5th Annual WILLPOWER Summit will now be held 
April 28-29, 2022 at The Ritz-Carlton Dallas, so mark your calendars to join us then!

This annual women's leadership summit is hosted by the ALFN's largest member-driven volunteer group, Women in Legal Leadership (WILL).  This event is less about your typical industry topics, and more about building relationships and professional development alongside some of the industry's brightest thought leaders, connected by the same WILL of empowering women to lead.
