An Interview with
Lisa M. Denig
Q: You are involved in so many aspects of the WWBA. Tell us about how you first became involved in the organization, and your various contributions over the years.A: I was first introduced to the WWBA when I applied for and was chosen to receive the Hon. Sondra Miller Scholarship, given annually by the WWBA Foundation to a Pace Law student. When I came to the dinner to accept the award, I was struck by the collegial feeling that members of the WWBA had and I was warmly welcomed by Jane Bilus-Gould, then the director of the Foundation. I knew that I wanted to be an active member of this organization that seemed to revel in the achievements of their members and energetically supported all women in the legal profession.
The afterglow of the joyous 40th Anniversary of the Westchester Women’s Bar Association is starting to fade.
Fortunately, Margaret Fox’s fabulous photographs, which can be viewed and purchased on her website (http://margaretfoxphotography.com/) extend the memories of that glorious and unforgettable evening. But, as I embark on writing the first of a series of monthly columns, I am relieved that being the President of the WWBA does not require that I have all the ideas or even that I make all the right decisions. It means that, as President, I must be devoted to creating an environment in which everyone else’s ideas are welcomed and treasured and in which the sage wisdom of my predecessors and my peers can and must guide all decisions.
