Welcome to the beginning of another exciting year for KCWWL! I am delighted to represent KCWWL as its new President.
For those of you who don’t know me, I am a civil litigation attorney practicing at Lane Powell in Seattle, and I look forward to continuing the work of KCWWL over the coming year. I’ve been a member of this Board for three years now, and it’s an energetic group to be a part of. I could not be more excited to be working with the group of women making up our 2013 Board. We have a number of enthusiastic members returning from our 2012 Board and a great group of eager new Board members as well. We are all excited about the opportunities of this coming year, and we’re especially looking forward to getting to know more of King County’s talented female attorneys.
Earlier this year, our Board had its initial planning retreat for the year, and we’re looking forward to bringing you a host of exciting opportunities to engage with your fellow female attorneys practicing in King County. Networking opportunities, mentoring events, CLEs, and opportunities to give back to our community are at the top of our list. Please watch for our save-the-date notices coming soon.
I invite all of you to join or renew your membership, if you have not already done so, so that you can continue to take advantage of the membership benefits of both WWL and KCWWL. This is sure to be an exciting year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me; I’m looking forward to working with you all this year!
Erin Wilson, President
Washington Women Lawyers, King County Chapter
