Susan L. Pollet

Chair of the Archive and Historian Committee

Q: You had an exciting and productive year as WWBA President. What were the highlights of your term for you?

A: It was truly a privilege to serve as WWBA President this past year and honestly the entire year was a highlight.  First and foremost, my term was very rewarding for me in that I not only reinforced long standing relationships with fellow WWBA members but I also met and connected with so many WWBA members that I had not had a prior opportunity to get to really know.  I can honestly say we are a strong group of hardworking attorneys who are devoted to our legal profession and the WWBA.  Second, my Executive Board and the Committee co-chairs were highly motivated last year hosting over 60 programs and events, including: some of our recurring programs such as women in professional transition and book club; networking events such as paint night, meet the board, and several meet and greets with our new law student members;  CLEs and educational programs in areas of tax law, family and immigration law, employment law, zoning practice, ethics updates, and bankruptcy (to name just a few); breast cancer and ovarian cancer awareness events; and so many others.  Third, I am very proud to have formed both a Wellness Committee and a Mentor Committee – two areas I strongly feel our profession needs to be committed to long term.  Finally, and the greatest highlight for me, was the establishment of a mentor program which was overwhelmingly received and as such is going to certainly continue for the future of the WWBA.  The ability to positively impact these law students and meaningfully connect with the mentees was priceless.  Personally, I found a renewed perspective by once again seeing the legal profession from the vantage point of a law student.  These connections have been motivating and energizing to our WWBA mentors, myself included.

President's Message

by Angela Morcone Giannini, Esq.


A watershed moment is a turning point; the exact moment that changes the direction of an activity or situation.

      That moment for women and families of Westchester County and the State of New York occurred in the mid 1970’s when a group of twelve women including our honoree, The Honorable Sondra Miller, gathered in a living room here in Westchester recognizing the need to advance the social, economic and legal status for women through the law while promoting justice for all, regardless of sex.   In order to accomplish this, they established the Westchester Women’s Bar Association.   The mission of our organization remains the same today.
