I’m looking forward in anticipation for all the great things we will be experiencing in just a few short days, including: an interesting and diverse set of educational offerings, exciting and thought-provoking opening and closing plenary sessions, a chance to network and make connections with friends, both new and old, a graduation ceremony for our last-ever set of MSU graduates, our annual awards ceremony recognizing the notable accomplishments of our colleagues across the judiciary, the welcoming of new faces to our NCBC Board and leadership, and much more!
Please be sure to come and say hello to the Editorial Committee at the Information Sharing session in Chicago! Several members of the Committee will be on hand to meet you and discuss all things Impact, and as always, I’d like to thank the members of the Editorial Committee for their hard work and contributions on this issue:
· Jeffrey Peirce, Co-Chair (NJB)
· Monica Yepes (CACB)
· Jennifer Mahar (MIEB)
· Stephen Grant (DEB)
· Deanna Anderson (NYSB)
· Heather Burse (MIWB)
· Davida Carter-El (NYEB)
· Dailin Pena (FLSB)
· Shawna Taylor (KSB)
The city of Chicago is an exciting place with plenty of things to do, see, and eat! Be sure not to miss my all time Chicago favorite, the Chicago Mix at Garrett Popcorn, the cheeseburger with bacon at Au Cheval, the deep dish pizza with the buttery crust from Pequod’s Pizzeria, and more! For those not afraid of heights, take a photo at the top of the Willis Tower, take an Instagram-worthy shot at The Cloud Gate aka “The Bean,” and take a stroll around Navy Pier. There’s so much to look forward to!
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, or are looking for ways to get involved with the Impact Newsletter or the NCBC, please feel free to contact me at Jan_Zari@cacb.uscourts.gov. All information from this issue will also be available on our online blog.
