An Interview with

Susan L. Pollet

Chair of the Archive and Historian Committee

Q: Why did you become a member of the WWBA and in which ways have you been involved in the organization?

A: I became a member of the WWBA when I was a student at Pace Law School. I found friendly faces and a supportive network through the WWBA – the members were happy to provide guidance and advice.  As a student member, I served on the WWBA Environmental and Land Use Committee and assisted with planning a CLE. I was honored to receive the Sondra Miller Scholarship from the WWBA Foundation as a 3L. Since then, I have developed great relationships through the organization – both personal and professional. Last year, I served as a Board member and this year I am thrilled to serve as a Vice President!  As VP, I plan to focus on increasing membership among new lawyers and improving our social media presence (follow us on Instagram @westchester_womens_bar).
