The November 2015 issue of the Austin Lawyer, the Austin Bar Association's monthly publication, announced MAMAs Austin's wonderful news: our website has gone live! The article also explained that incoming president Stephanie Potter has taken the reins from Lauren Schoenbaum. Schoenbaum was an exception leader for the past two years and will continue to be an active member of the MAMAs Board.
