This is my last edition of Under Construction as its editor. I wanted to say how thankful I am of the dozens of authors and contributors, my editorial team members (Jayne Czik, Neal Sweeney, Catherine Bell, Wes Bonnheim, Jean Terry, Mike Lane, and Carmela Mastrianni), and ABA team members (Elmarie Jara, Tamara Harrington, LaShaunda Williams, Colleen Hardison, and others). I have served as an associate editor and editor of Under Construction for the previous six years! In that time, I have learned so much from you all. I greatly enjoyed working on the articles, coming up with ideas, and changing things up. Under Construction was a fabulous way for me to connect with you all over the past 6 years. During my tenure, working with the Forum’s Divisions, we created the following running columns: On In-House Counsel’s Desk (Div. 11), Workplace Chatter (Div. 6), Dispute Resolver (Div. 1), and Construction Law 101 (Young Lawyers Division). We have featured numerous members and remembered the members who we have sadly lost. We created an ABA Connect page and engagd on social media to increase Under Construction’s reach.
I am even more excited to see what comes next with Neal Sweeney as Under Construction’s editor beginning with our 23rd Volume! Neal has been a great team member and I know he will take Under Construction to the next level along with his new associate editor and editorial team. Congrats Neal! Authors and contributors, please keep sending Under Construction your top caliber articles, viewpoints, and other submissions. Under Construction is a substantial part of the Forum’s goal of building the best construction lawyers and we cannot do it without YOU. Thank you!
