July 01, 2017 Chair's Column


C. Joyce Hall, Watkins & Eager PLLC, Jackson, MS

Change. A six-letter curse word to some. It doesn’t have to be. Perspective is everything.

Reality hit several days ago that “change was coming’” when the mail room called my office and informed me that I had a very large box waiting for me. I asked what it might be. The answer, “I think it is a chair?!” The long-standing tradition in the Health Law Section is to present the Section Chair a rocking chair upon completion of his or her term. My personalized chair arrived two months early, causing me to wonder if the staff was ready for the changing of the guard! So I asked. No, I learned. They just didn’t want to forget. They ordered the chair when it came to mind, not realizing that it would be delivered so quickly. It was, however, for me a wake-up call that time flies, especially when you are having fun, and change was coming soon.
