Convention Recap from Outgoing President, Justin Flint

24 Oct 2016 8:47 AM | Nat Calamis (Administrator)

The 2016 Annual Convention scheduled for Key Biscayne, Miami, had to be canceled due to the path track of Hurricane Matthew.  In an amazing turn of events, the attendees and the Board reviewed options in several states.  In 24 hours, we decided to attend the Regional Hyatt at Cambridge, Maryland.  It was a tremendous event.  The events included an opening reception with fire pit, S’mores, and dinner.  Members received local wines for their travels.  


On Friday and Saturday morning, we had the conventional CLEs for Virginia credit.  Special thanks to Nick McConnell, Daniele Herndon, Hugh Farrell, Eric Gunderson, Craig Brodsky, Jim Steele, Nancy Michalski, and last, but not least, the amazing CLE by Senior Member Jack Duncan. 


The golfers had great weather on Friday afternoon.  Although it rained because of the hurricane Saturday, we had a great closing dinner with a special crab feast and celebrated the birthday of Jodi Terranova’s husband, Dave.  Finally, the Board approved the new slate of directors.


I am pleased to announce that the Board approved Daniele Herndon to be President, Tim Fisher to be Vice President/President-Elect, Nat Calamis as Secretary, and Erin Miller as Treasurer.  The remaining at-large Board of Directors are Adam Smith, Craig Brodsky, Ramona Cotca, and Justin M. Flint.  Thank you all for an incredible 2015-2016.  We are looking forward to an excellent new year.   DCDLA is in good hands with the new officers.
