Dear Members and Friends,
As another year is all too quickly coming to an end, we would like to thank you for your continued support and wish you a healthy, happy and prosperous 2019!
Wrapping up a busy and successful 2018, we welcome the newly elected Executive Committee for 2018-2019. Our End of Year Drinks following the AGM was a wonderful celebration of the achievements for the year. Please click here to view the photos from the event, here for Holly Lam’s outgoing President’s Report, here for Larissa Andelman’s acceptance speech as incoming President, our Treasurer’s Report and the Financial Statements.
We are deeply appreciative and gratefully thank the Law Society of NSW for their ongoing support as our Principal Sponsor, and the many corporate firms, chambers and organisations that hosted events or partnered with us in delivering projects, submissions and events during the past year, and the speakers that gave freely of their time.
We also partnered with the First 100 Years Team founded by Rachel Scanlon and the Law Society of NSW to deliver the ‘First 100 Years’ project which concluded with a Gala Dinner at Parliament House on 26 November 2018, at which we hosted a table. Please click here for details and the video.
We’ll be kicking off 2019 with the launch of our signature biennial event, the ‘NSW Women Lawyers Achievement Awards’, featuring a panel of some of our previous award winners, 5.30pm Thursday 21 February 2019 at the Union University & Schools Club Sydney. And please save the dates for a number of other events already in the planning as noted below.
Our office will be closed from 21 December 2018 and will reopen 14 January 2019. The Executive Committee will then meet in the new year for a Strategic Planning meeting focused on exploring ways to continue to bring value to you as the voice of women in the NSW legal profession. As always, please do not hesitate to get involved with us and any of our subcommittees. We are looking forward to a busy year of events and policy work and look forward to having you on board.
Thank you for another great year!
