The success of Thanks from LSNF TWL was because of the nearly 30 incredible women who served as TWL’s Board.

President’s Message cont’d from p. 1 Judge Judith Hawkins, TWL’s Sunshine Chair, sent countless notes on behalf of TWL to congratu- late members on accomplishments and to offer support in times of need. These are essential to TWL’s mission of support and friendship. Every general membership meeting was a success because of the work of Meghan Boudreau Daigle, TWL’s Programs Chair, and Jenny Kim, TWL’s Meetings Coordinator. Elizabeth “Bib” Willis or- ganized TWL’s Judicial Candidates Forum allowing TWL members to meet the candidates for Second Judi- cial Circuit Court Judge. For the first time in history, the two candidates were women. Carol Grondzik and Cathy Lannon produced the color 30 th Anni- versary Year Directory which was provided to every member and mem- bers of the judiciary. Catherine Chapman and Megan Warren organized a spec- tacular Judicial Reception. This year’s festivities even included a new feature - a photo history of the judici- ary. Winifred Acosta NeSmith organized TWL community service efforts, including a Second Harvest food drive, a holiday fund-raiser to raise donations for Refuge House, Office of Public Guardian, Inc. (OPG) and Guardian Ad Litem, and TWL’s donations for the Bed, Bath and Hope Program and the TMH Pediatric ICU. Wendy Loquasto helped TWL renew its commitment to assisting Legal Ser- vices of North Florida with financial donations to Jazz for Justice and through the recruitment of volunteers to serve LSNF clients. First District Court of Appeal Judge Stephanie Williams Ray co- ordinated TWL’s mentoring program in which TWL members mentored approximately 50 FSU law students. This year’s mentoring program in- cluded TWL’s 30 th Anniversary Year Rookie Camp, supported by grants from the Florida Bar Foundation. Rookie Camp was organized and di- rected to its success by Jenny Shoaf and Lindsey Lawton, who had help from more than 30 volunteers from TWL, the judiciary, and the legal community. Lauchlin Waldoch and Dana Brooks evaluated TWL’s Legacy of Excellence program. Their sugges- tions and changes will ensure the pro- gram’s continuation and growth for years to come. Tracy Moye organized TWL’s annual Breakfast and Books Program with PACE Center for Girls.

MEETING SPONSORS & SERVICE PROVIDERS Because TWL is a non-profit, voluntary bar organization, contributions from sponsors and volunteer services providers are critical to maintaining the excellent level of programming TWL currently provides to its members. TWL would like to thank the following meeting sponsors and volunteer service providers who have contributed to its meetings since May 2011. LexisNexis sponsored TWL’s May Lunch & Learn CLEs. Healthy Solutions, Inc. provided seated massages at TWL’s June 15, 2011, General Membership Meeting, The Art of Fun. Healthy Solutions, Inc. is located at 521 East College Ave., Tallahassee, FL 32301, (850) 545-1368. For information regarding sponsorship opportunities, contact TWL’s Director of Development, Jason O’Steen, at (850) 877-1028 or at jason@osteenosteen.com. JOIN TWL’S MENTORING PROGRAM It’s that time of year again—time to join TWL’s Mentoring Program! Our mentoring program pairs judge and attorney mentors with FSU College of Law students from the Women’s Law Symposium. This year’s program will include events designed to build strong mentor-mentee relationships and provide valu- able networking and learning opportunities for all involved. Mentor-mentee pairings will be made in Au- gust so that we can hit the ground running when the students return to school. If you would like to serve as a mentor this year, or to learn more about the program, please contact Judge Stephanie Williams Ray at rays@1dca.org or 850-487-1000. MANY THANKS TO TWL FOR ITS SUPPORT OF JAZZ FOR JUSTICE! By Wendy Loquasto, TWL’s Liaison to Legal Services Legal Services of North Florida, Inc., extends its grateful thanks to Tallahassee Women Lawyers for its support of Jazz for Justice through its Family Sponsorship and through the hours of donated time by TWL volunteers and the purchase of tickets and sponsorships and the donation of items to the silent auction by its members. Thanks to TWL and the other supporters, Jazz for Justice 2011 was the BEST JAZZ EVER and the most successful! Special thanks to the following TWL members who went above and beyond: Catherine Chapman, Meghan Boudreau Daigle, Jennifer Sullivan Davis, Carol S. Grondzik, Joan Humphrey Anderson, Trudy Innes Richardson, Jessica Leigh, Wendy Loquasto, Lauren Moody, Dana Morris-Brooks, Winifred Acosta Nesmith, Aubrey Posey, and Twyla Sketchley. In these economic times, with Governor Scott’s veto of $1 million in funds to legal services or- ganizations ($52K to LSNF), the Florida Legislature’s cut of $1 million for foreclosure assistance ($60K to LSNF), and proposals in Washington to cut $300 million from Legal Services Corporation appropriations (a rollback to pre-1999 funding), the importance of efforts like Jazz for Justice and the generosity of support- ers like TWL cannot be understated. THANKS, TWL, FOR ALL YOU DO FOR LSNF! Without your support, LSNF could not continue to assist the low-income citizens of Florida’s Panhandle by ensuring equal justice for all! P.S. Don’t forget to contact John Fenno (701-3306 or john@lsnf.org) to sign up for the LSNF Hotline. P AGE 4

FAWL: ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL YEAR IN REVIEW By Jennifer Sullivan Davis, TWL’s FAWL Representative and President-Elect. Ms. Davis is an attorney at Guilday, Tucker, Schwartz & Simpson, P.A., where she practices professional liability defense. She may be reached at jen@guildaylaw.com or at (850) 224-7091. This has been an incredibly successful year for the Florida Association for Women Lawyers (FAWL), TWL’s statewide parent organization. FAWL is entering its 60 th year and I have recognized that the key to its successes this year was the leadership by FAWL President, Gigi Rollini of Holland & Knight, LLP, and other TWL members in- cluding Elizabeth “Bib” Willis, FAWL’s Legislative Director, and Karen Howe, TWL Affiliate Member and FAWL’s new Executive Director. Serving as a Chapter Representative for TWL for the second year in a row really gave me a good idea of how instrumental FAWL has been in shaping The Bar’s focus on women and diversity, as well as the challenges that a statewide organization has managing 29 Chapters. As President of FAWL, Gigi Rollini coordinated FAWL’s Inaugural Women’s Leadership Summit, which was held in March in Tallahassee in conjunction with FAWL’s Lobby Day and TWL’s award-winning Women’s Em- powerment Series. In her additional role as Immediate Past President of TWL, Gigi fully launched TWL’s Profes- sional Women’s Exchange (WE) Network, which is a broad network of professionals and community leaders brought together for the purpose of facilitating business and leadership development for women professionals. There is no better way for a woman to get ahead in marketing than by creating her own network of people for referrals and lead- ership opportunities, while helping the community at the same time. Bib Willis was instrumental in coordinating Lobby Day this year. Once again, Bib gave our FAWL visitors a warm welcome and thorough tour of the Capitol building. Bib always makes visiting FAWL members feel as if they are getting a personal tour of our community! Karen Howe, TWL Affiliate Member and FAWL’s new Executive Director, joined our organization mid- year (in October 2010), and jumped right in to help get (and keep) our Chapters organized, particularly in the mem- bership and dues departments. We are so very happy to have Karen at the helm of our administrative side and are grateful that FAWL is a staffed voluntary bar. In celebration of FAWL’s 60 th anniversary, FAWL held its 60 th Anniversary Gala & Dinner on June 23, 2011, at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando, FL, where FAWL recognized recipients of its Leaders in the Law Award from each Chapter. Speakers included Florida Supreme Court Justices Peggy Quince and Barbara Pariente, Past FAWL President Siobhan Shea, Past FAWL and TWL Presidents Judge June C. McKinney and Wendy Lo- quasto, and Past FAWL and Florida Bar President Edith Osman. Award recipients from TWL included Judge Judith W. Hawkins, TWL’s Sunshine Chair; Chasity O’Steen of Rose Sundstrom & Bentley, TWL Past President (2007-2008); and Twyla Sketchley, TWL’s outgoing President and founder of The Sketchley Law Firm. FAWL also held its Annual Meeting, Installation of its Officers, and Board Orientation on June 23-24, 2011. Finally, FAWL co- hosted the Joint Awards Lunch, where Administrative Law Judge June C. McKinney, who is also a FAWL and TWL Past President, was awarded FAWL’s prestigious Rosemary Barkett Outstanding Achievement Award. Twyla Sketchley, Jennifer Sullivan Davis, and Hon. Judith W. Hawkins Lindsey Lawton, Jennifer Sullivan Davis, Hon. June C. McKinney, Susan Healey, and Gigi Rollini Correction: The FAWL Update in TWL’s Spring 2011 newsletter cited Florida Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich as a presenter, instead of Senator Ellyn Bogdanoff.

TWL’S INAUGURAL ROOKIE CAMP On April 8, 2011, TWL hosted its first ―Rookie Camp‖ for new attorneys and law students at the First District Court of Appeal. The event was kicked off the evening before with a wine and cheese event celebrating the Mentoring Program and the relationship be- tween TWL and FSU College of Law’s Women’s Law Symposium. Students mingled with their attorney mentors and received a behind- the-scenes tour of the new courthouse, led by the Honorable Simone Marstiller, of the First District Court of Appeal. P AGE 6 Rookie Camp took place the following day and was attended by law students from Florida State, Florida Coastal, and new attorneys in the Tallahassee area. The students received practical advice in the form of three different panels. Lynne Quimby-Pennock, Board of Governors Member Bill Davis, and Terry Dariotis discussed ―Ten Things Every New Attorney Should Know on the First Day of the First Job.‖ Their discussion was followed by ―An Order is an Order, Not a Suggestion‖ with the Honorable Joseph Lewis, of the First District Court of Appeal, and TWL Men- toring Director, the Honorable Stephanie Williams Ray, of the First District Court of Appeal, speaking. Finally, Judge Marstiller, Aubrey Posey, and Karen Campbell shared the journeys they have taken in their careers during the alternative career panel. Here, the students and attorneys learned how to use their law degree as a tool in achieving sometimes non-traditional career goals. The panel discussions were followed by lunch and a speed men- toring session. Local attorneys and members of the judiciary joined for this portion of the day. Legal Services, Guardian Ad Litem, and the Office of Public Guardian set up booths and encouraged students to donate pro bono services. Many thanks to the Florida Bar Foundation for generous grants provided through the Voluntary Bar Association Community Service Grant Program and the Affiliate Outreach Confer- ence, put on by the Young Lawyers Division of The Florida Bar, which made this event free of charge for the students and new attorneys.

GET INVOLVED IN TWL!—JOIN A COMMITTEE OR GET INVOLVED WITH THE BOARD! Jennifer Sullivan Davis, TWL’s Incoming President, is an attorney at Guilday, Tucker, Schwartz & Simpson, P.A., where she practices professional liability defense. Tallahassee Women Lawyers is one of Florida’s most active voluntary bar associations. Although we are not a staffed organization, we have a very strong Board consisting of five elected officers (President, President-elect, Secretary, Treas- urer, and Public Relations), an Immediate Past President, and seven elected directors (Mentoring, Programs, Development, Newsletter, CLE, Judicial Reception, and FAWL Representative). In addition, the President appoints members to chair our committees including Awards, Charitables & Community Service, Judicial Reception Development, Legacy of Excellence, Meetings Coordinator, Special Events, Sun- shine Chair, Young Lawyers Section and Breakfast & Books. The Board in its entirety implements our overall mission, while the Directors and Chairs manage the day to day details of our programs. Many of you know that my husband, Ashley, is an emergency manager and, after years of observing him in action with the latest disasters (hurricanes, wildfires, floods, and an oil spill), I have come to think of TWL in terms of emergency management—plans, finance and admin, operations, and logistics. The Board as a whole meets every month to plan our year and programs. The Officers primarily handle the finance and administrative side. The Directors are in charge of the operations for their various programs and work closely with the Committee Chairs and Committee Members to execute their programs and handle the logis- tics for making sure these events are a success! While this all sounds like we have it under control—and of course we do—we could always use ad- ditional help with new ideas or suggestions on improving our programs. The Chairs of our Committees are looking to get you involved and get you on their Committees! Many of you indicated on your membership application or renewal forms the committees you were interested in. In that case, we will have the Chair of those Committees contact you shortly. If you are interested in a Committee, but didn’t have a chance to let us know before, please contact Meghan Boudreau Daigle, President-elect at mbdaigle@comcast.net or Jen Sullivan Davis, President, at jen@guildaylaw.com to learn more or sign up for a Committee. We look for- ward to hearing from you! MY, HOW TIME FLIES! TWL celebrates its 31st Anniversary this year! When TWL was just two years old, we held our first Annual Judicial Reception. Who knew at the time that we would be continuing this tradition almost three decades later! Preparations are already underway for our 29th Annual Judicial Reception, which will be held this October. And we need your help! We are looking for photographs, newspaper articles, etc., of judges, TWL members, or other local, state, or national leaders taken at past TWL events that you would be willing to loan to TWL. Many of these items will be enlarged and displayed at the Judicial Reception. If you have any items you would like to share, please contact TWL’s Judicial Reception Director, Catherine Chapman, at catherine@guildaylaw.com or at (850) 224-7091. Thank you for helping us celebrate 31 great years! P AGE 8
