Earlier this year, the Forum Chair appointed two search committees to find candidates for the open editor positions at The Construction Lawyer and Under Construction. The search committees received and reviewed scores of impressive applications, a tribute to the volunteer commitment of Forum members. Based on the recommendations of the search committees, the Forum Chair presented three candidates to the Governing Committee for approval. In April 2012, the Governing Committee approved the appointment of new editors for The Construction Lawyer and Under Construction:
- Michael A. Branca, Associate Editor, The Construction Lawyer
- Jayne Czik, Editor of Under Construction
- Ridgely Jackson, Associate Editor, Under Construction
In addition, Stephen Hess, the current Associate Editor of The Construction Lawyer, was appointed to succeed John Ralls as Editor.
