APRIL 2017

The Charleston FDCC meeting was a huge success. Live juror deliberations and another unique venue made the meeting memorable! 


Our focus this year is on sustaining our members. It’s our extreme vetting which sets us apart from other organizations. The goal is to corporate members and to have 1200 lawyer members by 2018, up from the current 1041. Of our new members, 33% are women or diverse. Please help our section with 2 nominees this year. 


The organization has been in transition. The new Executive Director and management team are working hard and the transition to the new group appears to be going well.  


There are exciting meetings on the horizon. Summer 2017 in Switzerland looks to be fabulous. Montreux is in a micro climate and we will gather on Tuesday for a fellowship day with three options for excursions which include glaciers, suspension bridges and toboggan rides. For the President’s Reception we will have the entire village of Gruyere. The Winter 2018 Meeting is at  Amelia Island, Florida. Summer 2018 is in Hawaii. The focus will be on the Whole Lawyer, Health and Happiness and the science of listening.  


Finally, please share your successes with your fellow members. It’s hard to brag on ourselves, but it’s easy to brag on each other. I’ve been truly impressed with each member I’ve asked to help my client. Skilled, knowledgeable and with good judgment. Help us get to know you and your practice.
