President's Message

by Lisa Denig, Esq.

Dear Members,

With the Annual Dinner just a few weeks behind us, I am anxious to keep the inspiration and good spirits of that night alive as we move through the summer months.  As such, I am reprinting my speech here and I hope you will enjoy it as much the second time around!

Good Evening and welcome.

        I want to thank Carol Robles Roman for her inspiring words.  When I heard the news about Judge Abdus-Salaam’s tragic passing, I simply couldn’t envision anyone who could fill her spot but you have done so and with passion and energy that has inspired us all.
