Message from the Chair

Cheryl Dancey Balough

To say COVID-19 has presented all of us with many challenges is an understatement. Whenever change is thrust upon us, however, we always find positive outcomes. One such benefit has been the opportunity to connect with more Cyberspace Law Committee members through online meetings and webinars. While I hope that we can gather again in person in the not-too-distant future, we will adjust so we also can retain this benefit of expanded member participation.

To that end, I encourage you to register for and take advantage of the many offerings in the first ever BLS Virtual Annual Meeting. All CLE programs and committee/subcommittee meetings will occur over the week of September 21-25 between 9 am and 4 pm CT. Virtual health clubs and receptions will occur before and after the day’s programs/meetings. This is an excellent opportunity for everyone to attend excellent programming from the comfort of your desk (or wherever you might be working)—and to participate in our committee and subcommittee meetings. If travel budgets have prevented you from getting involved in the past, you no longer have that obstacle. We look forward to your involvement! See more information below about the schedule, CLE programs, and meetings. Most importantly, register now for this FREE meeting.

The Virtual Annual Meeting will be my last activity as chair of this amazing Cyberspace Law Committee. The past three years have flown by, and I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with such a talented leadership team and membership, who have contributed so much for ABA members: CLE programs, books, articles, webinars, lively discussions, podcasts, and more. I thank you all for the expertise you have shared and your humor and camaraderie! And I look forward to passing the baton to Cheryl Burtzel, the incoming chair, and Ed Morse, incoming vice-chair. Please see Cheryl’s article below about opportunities and reach out to her with your ideas.

See you online at the Virtual Annual Meeting!
