We are happy to share that Immediate Past President Amanda Fried’s daughter, Indie Frances Fried, was born on December 28, 2022. Congratulations to Amanda, and we welcome Indie to the WWBA family!

On December 2, 2022, longtime WWBA member, Gladys G. Ullmann, Esq., was inducted into the Westchester County Senior Citizens Hall of Fame. The awards ceremony, now in its 40th year, was conducted as a multi-platform virtual event and led by Westchester County Executive George Latimer.

Collaboration between the WWBA and the Westchester County Bar Association continued this year with overwhelming support from our members, amounting to a successful second Winter Coat Drive. More than 300 coats, plus scarves, hats, and gloves, were delivered on January 10, 2023 to Lifting Up Westchester, Grasslands Homeless Shelter, and Midnight Run. Thank you, donors!

Interview of the Month

An Interview with 
Christine Paska

Susan L. Pollet

Chair of the Archive and Historian Committee

Q: When and why did you become involved in the Westchester Women’s Bar Association?

A: I initially became involved with the Westchester Women’s Bar Association as a 1L at Pace Law School in 2006.  Upon graduation I moved to New York City to begin my legal career so I could not continue my membership.  After moving back to Westchester County and starting a job at the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office in 2021, I rejoined the Westchester Women’s Bar Association to network and develop a sense of community after spending much of the Covid-19 pandemic working from home. 

Q: Which activities and positions of the Westchester Women’s Bar Association have you participated in?

A: Since rejoining the Westchester Women’s Bar Association in 2021 I have been one of the co-chairs of the mentorship committee and I am currently the recording secretary for the 2022-2023 year.

President's Message

by Elizabeth Z. Marcus

The New Year is upon us, and now is an opportunity to make resolutions and set goals.  I hope you will join us in reaching the WWBA’s goal of increasing our membership numbers by January 31st. We are counting on everyone’s contribution to help us reach our goal!  Here’s why:

      The WWBA is a chapter of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York, which we call, “WBASNY,” the largest statewide women’s bar association in the country.  For more than 40 years, WBASNY has been an important resource for women lawyers, with professional networking, continuing legal education programming, leadership training, and advocacy for the rights of women, children, and families.  WBASNY is comprised of 20 chapters throughout New York State, and Westchester is the second largest chapter.
