President's Message
 

Greetings, my fellow lawyer-pilots and co-pilots! As the new President of our association, I wanted to thank our Past President for a fun and productive year, introduce myself, and let you know what I hope the coming year will bring. 

So first, thank you to Greg and Kristine Reigel.  We had two fabulous conventions, first in sunny Puerto Rico and then on beautiful Gull Lake, Minnesota.  They were fun-filled and action-packed venues. Perhaps more importantly, Greg worked with the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors to amend the bylaws of our association.  This will allow us to streamline decision making processes and approvals and generally make the governance of LPBA much more efficient. Anyone who has ever tried to get a large group of lawyers to agree on something, especially such a major change, knows this was no small feat. Thank you, Greg!  

Most of you know me: my husband, Jesse, and I live in Albuquerque, NM.  I do some aviation law but most of my practice is focused on intellectual property law (patent, trademark, copyright, and entertainment) as well as civil litigation.  I joined LPBA in 2014 when fellow LPBA member Jim Gilman had his convention in Albuquerque and Jess and I have been hooked ever since. We love the comradery of the pilots and co-pilots and have gained many new friends through the association.  I’m proud to serve as President and hope that, like Greg, I can effect some improvements.  

As for next year’s conventions, March 13 to 17, 2024, will find us in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the winter convention.  The Green Valley Ranch Resort and Casino (https://www.greenvalleyranch.com/) is located in Henderson, about a 10 minute drive from the Harry Reid Airport (those of you attached to the “McCarran” name should Google why they changed it!).  The weather should be perfect and Adam Zucker is putting together a great CLE program.  Then, we’ll be at the Westin Hotel in downtown Seattle, Washington, from July 17 to July 21. We’re planning great group events and co-pilot adventures in both places.  We look forward to seeing you all next year!
