Message from Judith B. Prowda, EASL Chair

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Kimberly Ayers Shariff, Esq. as Chair of EASL's newly formed In-House Counsel Committee. Kim is the Deputy General Counsel of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

The mission of this Committee is to create a forum where members can share information and best practices, as well as address the unique opportunities, challenges and substantive issues that face attorneys practicing in-house in the entertainment, arts and sports law fields. One of the Committee's specific goals is to form an "open source" information bank where in-house attorneys can seek (as well as contribute) advice and substantive guidance akin to the attorney-to-attorney exchange of information that occurs in a law firm environment but less frequently in-house. To facilitate these goals, Kim is already planning programs of great interest to in-house and outside counsel in the entertainment, arts and sports law fields, in both the for-profit and not-for-profit arenas. Stay tuned for exciting events organized for the members of this new dynamic EASL committee!

If you are interested in joining this Committee, please contact Leslie Scully at lscully@nysba.org. You must be a member of the New York State Bar Association and the EASL Section in order to join any of the EASL committees. Please visit our website at http://www.nysba.org/.

Please join me in congratulating Kim and wishing her good luck in her Bar leadership!
