I am deeply honored to serve as your Section Chair for the 2020–2021 ABA year—a year without precedent as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the mid-1980s, I have been attending Section and ABA conferences, programs, and meetings and reading Section publications. Section and ABA content has been integral to developing, creating, and sustaining my environmental law practice both in the government and private practice. I hope each of you will find a welcoming home in our Section that provides true and beneficial value to your law practice as well.
My theme for the coming year is “Building on the Past—Focusing on the Future.”
