Jeff is the treasurer of GDLA, and hosted a panel over the weekend at the conference titled “What’s New in Mediation? Preparation, Process, and Professionalism.” The panelists broke down mediation to teach the audience just what they need to know to have a successful mediation. This panel is just the beginning of Jeff’s involvement with GDLA. Holding the position of newsletter editor-in-chief for the past three years and being named treasurer, he is doing it all.
Partner Hall McKinley was named president of the GDLA, along with Jeff’s treasury induction. Jeff will follow in Hall’s footsteps and be inducted as president in 2020. This is unheard of in an association of this size and Drew Eckl & Farnham is proud of the work these partners are doing.
