Dear Fellow Section Members,
I am humbled and honored to have been entrusted with the role of Section Chair this year. As Chair, I am committed to fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment within our Section. I firmly believe that, by harnessing our diverse skills and perspectives, we can achieve remarkable progress this year.
I envision the upcoming bar year to include growth in our Section’s membership, learning through wonderful CLEs, and impactful initiatives such as the Arbitration Advocacy Institute in February.
Together, we will explore innovative approaches to ADR, stay abreast of the latest developments in the field, and create occasions for networking (such as our October Mediation Mixers and our September Retreat in Orlando, where I hope to see you all!).
I am truly excited about the upcoming year and the opportunities that lie ahead for our Section. I invite each of you to actively engage in our Section’s activities, share your valuable insights, and contribute to our collective success. If you have ideas regarding the Section’s activities, then please feel free to contact me.
Once again, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as your Chair. I look forward to getting to know you all and I cannot wait to start the remarkable journey we will embark upon together during this bar year!
Christy L. Foley
ADR Section Chair, 2023-2024
