SDESL's primary purpose is to connect people in the extended San Diego region who work in, or are just interested in, the Entertainment and Sports Industries. In doing so - we Members share resources and make connections, SDESL sponsor's events and has monthly "social" gathering of Members to network, get to know your colleagues and start the flow or creative energy.
Because there are so many specialties in the entertainment & sports communities, SDESL sponsors numerous committees and subsections who may source their own speakers, events, sporting outings and educational programs.. In addition, we hope to soon offer low cost attorney MCLE to members. SDESL encourages Members to form special interest committees dedicated to their particular interests. In the past these have included Music, Sports representation and the Fashion Industry.
