A Note From the Chair

A Note from the Chair, Amy Hancock

Happy Holidays! I'm pleased to provide you with this month's PDC update. Let me begin to say how wonderful it was to see so many of you earlier this month at PDC's Winter Meeting.

  • Recharged, Re-Energized and Renewed...Those are the words I use to describe walking away from this month's PDC Winter Meeting. I want to again thank Planning Committee Co-Chairs Ruth Alexandor and Maggie Suender and the entire committee for developing this unique program. For photos from the day, visit the PDC Facebook Page. We have posted the presentations in the members' only section of the PDC Website.
  • During the Winter Meeting, PDC honored its 2015 Richard Pearson Award honorees. Congratulations to long time PDC member Burt Lipshie for this special recognition. The PDC also recognized Anita Zigman, a PDC member and former chair, who recently passed away. What a memorable and inspiring moment to have her husband Jeff Slotnick share some reflections of Anita's legacy during our awards presentation.
  • I also announced that Don Smith, Director of Attorney Development and Diversity at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP is now serving as the PDC Vice Chair. I am delighted to work with Don and all of the talented and committed PDC Board of Directors.

We look forward to 2016 for the PDC and continued new opportunities for membership engagement. Thank you again for your support and please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Happy Holidays to you and your family and friends!
