Board member announcement

Toronto Lawyers’ Association welcomes new president, Mark Crane

May 8, 2024

The Toronto Lawyers’ Association is thrilled to welcome our new Board President, Mark Crane for the 2024-2025 term.

Mark joined the TLA Board of Directors in 2014, advancing up the ladder while having benefited from working with knowledgeable past-presidents and dedicated board members. He acknowledges how they have made the TLA what it is today with hard work, collaboration and strong leadership. Mark’s five previous years on the executive before becoming Board President gave him the opportunity to understand the inner workings of the Association.

In a recent LegalMattersCanada article, Mark outlined his priorities for his term as President, including building on the success of the civility report and ramping up advocacy campaigns on behalf of the legal profession and the TLA’s membership. “Continuing to take positions in advocacy when it makes sense for the organization is also a priority,” says Mark. “We represent nearly 4,000 members and we have a voice. We have the respect of the community and when issues arise, we are prepared to take a position.”

Mark’s term is commencing with enthusiasm for the coming year and the ongoing commitment to creating impact as an organization.
