Practice Management Group Inducts 12 as Fellows
I try to avoid shameless self-promotion here, figuring I can do that on my own blog. This weekend, however, I found myself in the company of a group of outstanding legal professionals, all of whom were being honored as leaders and innovators in the field of law practice management. So I can justify this post as being about them, not about me.
At a dinner in Denver Saturday night, 12 of us from the U.S. and Canada were inducted as fellows of the College of Law Practice Management. The nomination letter sent to the inductees earlier this year by COLPM President Edward Flitton succinctly explains the college's purpose:
The COLPM is an honorary organization, unassociated with any bar association, which formally recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the law practice management profession over a period of not less than ten years. Currently, there are just over 200 Fellows from all around the world.
So it was a true honor for me to join this year's group of inductees, which was composed of:
- Laura Calloway, director of service programs, Alabama State Bar Association, Montgomery, Ala.
- Ronald Collins, founder and CEO, Gavel & Gown Software, Toronto
- Richard Ferguson, partner, Lynass, Ferguson & Shoctor, Edmonton, Alberta
- Bruce MacEwen, publisher, Adam Smith Esq., New York City
- Karen MacKay, president, Phoenix Legal, Toronto
- Catherine Alman MacDonagh, president, Legal Sales and Service Organization, Boston
- Stephen Nelson, managing principal, Law & Government Affairs Practice Group, The McCormick Group, Arlington, Va.
- Cherie Olland, global director of business development & communications, Jones Day, Cleveland, Ohio
- Alan Rich, president, Chrome River Technologies (and founder of Elite), Los Angeles
- Kendal H. Tyre, partner, Nixon Peabody, Washington, D.C.
- Marcia Wasserman, chief operating officer, Nossaman LLP, Los Angeles
With my induction now official, I join another member of the Law.com Blog Network who is already a COLPM fellow: Rees Morrison. Ron Friedmann, a former member of this network, is also a member. And, of course, Bruce MacEwen, who was inducted alongside me, was a long-time member of this network.
Congratulations to all the inductees and thanks to COLPM for this great honor.
