 Prolific author and WWBA Archive & Historian Chair, Susan L. Pollet, has published a collection of poems in 2023, entitled “Susiku, And More.” Susan has been writing poems daily for the last three years, and her poems have appeared in various publications, but this is her first book of poetry. Its title is a play on words between haiku and her first name. The first part, “SEEKING CONNECTION, HOWEVER TENUOUS,” contains poems which examine struggles within relationships and in communications between people, as well as poems which explore internal dialogues. The second part, “REDEMPTION AND RENEWAL, ON OCCASION,” probes universal questions about existence, history, survival, violence, beauty, love and more. Looking forward to a warm coffee and inspiration in Susan’s poetry on a spring day. Please visit SusanPollet.com for more information. “Susiku, And More” is available on Amazon.com; Barnesandnoble.com; and other online and local retailers.

The Women in Professional Development group meets on the first Friday of each month, at 1:00pm, at the 445 Café in White Plains. Its goal is to provide WWBA members with informal support to effectively deal with the inevitability of change in our lives and careers. The group aims to provide peer-to-peer networking and conversation, and to leverage the experience and expertise of fellow WWBA members. The next meeting is scheduled for April 1, 2023, with a new discussion topic to be circulated closer to then. Please contact Sakeena B. Naqvi at sakeenan26@gmail.com, or Juliet Gobler, at juliet@goblerlaw.com, with any questions or to join the email list.

Interview of the Month

An Interview with 
Elizabeth Gazay

Susan L. Pollet

Chair of the Archive and Historian Committee

Q: When and why did you become involved in the Westchester Women’s Bar Association?

A: I was working in New York City, but live in White Plains, and wanted to find a professional community closer to home.  I began my involvement with the WWBA a few years ago after hearing of its reputation as a strong association with great members.  I attended a Westchester Women’s Bar Association happy hour where I met Lisa Denig, and learned more about the chapter, and the rest is history!

Q: Which activities and positions of the Westchester Women’s Bar Association have you participated in?

A: I’ve been a co-chair of the Criminal Law Committee since I started with the WWBA.  We put together a virtual meet-and-greet with the then newly elected Westchester District Attorney, Mimi Rocah, where members were given the opportunity to ask questions about her vision and goals as District Attorney.  Then, in the fall of 2022, the Committee sponsored a CLE in conjunction with the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York (WBASNY) Criminal Law Committee, on the Second Amendment in the wake of the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Bruen, and the New York State Legislature’s response with the Conceal Carry Improvement Act.

I am thrilled to report that the Westchester Women’s Bar Association not only achieved but also exceeded its membership goal of reaching 400 members who joined or renewed their membership between October 1, 2022 and January 31, 2023. Thanks to everyone’s efforts, we successfully maintained our voting status and number of delegates as the second largest chapter of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York (WBASNY), the largest statewide women’s bar association in the country. A special thank you to our wonderful Membership Committee co-chairs, Sherry Bishko and Joanna Tulman, who led us in reaching our goal.
