Congratulations and Farewells
By David W. Hilgers, Brown McCarroll, L.L.P., Austin, TX

Congratulations are in order for Sena Leach, the Associate Director of the Health Law Section for the last five years. She has taken a new job with Radiological Society of North America. Sena will work directly with the Research and Education Foundation to provide strategic guidance to its Board and Committee Leadership. This is a fabulous opportunity for her. What’s more it is only ten minutes from her home. Now, she can avoid the difficult Chicago commute and have more time to spend with her two children and husband. The Section Council is very happy for this opportunity for Sena.

However, the Section is very sad to be saying farewell to Sena. She has been an integral part of the success of the Section during her tenure. Her excellent skills were apparent to us all as she planned all of the Council meetings and events as well as providing the lead staff facilitator for all of the Section’s CLE, including both the large conferences and the teleconferences. If that was not enough, she was also instrumental in making the Breast Cancer Task Force a major success for the Section. And, she has done all this and handled all of us lawyers with a never varying pleasant demeanor and sunny attitude. She has become a part of our Section family and we will miss her.

We have a great staff remaining with Jill Peña, Simeon Carson and Abbey Palagi and they will do their usual great job as we seek a replacement for Sena. However, all of us on Council are speaking for the entire Section when we say thanks to Sena for all the work on behalf of the Section members. We will follow her future progress with interest and best wishes.
