As I sit down to write my final President’s Message, I am filled with a number of emotions. First, excitement. As of September 1, 2018, Heather Stern will become WLALA’s 99th President. Heather is a truly amazing woman and lawyer. She is wicked smart, practical, kind, capable and passionate. She is exactly the kind of woman that we want leading WLALA. She will formally be installed on September 20, 2018 at WLALA Awards and Installation Dinner where we will honor Hon. Beverly Reid O’Connell (1965-2017), Hon. Sandra R. Klein with the Distinguished Service Award and the CBRE Legal Department. I hope that you will join us for this special event and celebration of woman lawyers.
