Trio of White and Williams Lawyers Honored at PBA Annual Meeting
Three White and Williams lawyers were recognized by the Pennsylvania Bar Association (PBA) at the conclusion of the association's Annual Meeting. Partner Chuck Eppolito, in his last duty as PBA president, presented fellow partners Nancy Conrad and Josh Mooney with PBA President's Awards for their dedication to respective causes within the PBA. Chuck was also recognized for his service as PBA president and formally transitioned to immediate past president at the awards ceremony on May 17 in Lancaster, PA.
Nancy Conrad, Chair of the Labor and Employment and Education Groups, earned a PBA President's Award for her outstanding work as Chair of the Dues Structure Task Force. The task force researched dues structures of other professional organizations, reviewed information to determine what dues structures might successfully apply to the PBA and prepared recommendations for consideration by the Board of Governors.
Cyber Law and Data Protection Group Chair Josh Mooney was recognized for his work as Chair of the PBA's Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Committee. The committee analyzes cybersecurity issues and educates PBA members about legal, regulatory and industry standards that preserve the confidentiality of protected information. It has grown in membership, launched a blog providing updates on current issues and best practices and is preparing to present programming on these topics.
Finally, Partner Chuck Eppolito was introduced as immediate past president of the PBA. In his role as the 2018-2019 PBA president, Chuck traveled tens of thousands of miles across the commonwealth to meet and discuss issues of shared concern with lawyers and judges from more than 40 countries. He sought to form partnerships and collaborative relationships with numerous groups and individuals associated with the justice system and the practice of law, including judges, legislators, deans of all nine of Pennsylvania's law schools, Attorney General Josh Shapiro and Governor Tom Wolf. In addition to creating the Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Committee, Chuck called for the creation of a series of videos to educate young people about the U.S. Constitution. This important civics initiative is designed to ensure Pennsylvania's citizens and future leaders have a better understanding of the values of American democracy and the importance of the Rule of Law and an independent judiciary.
