Privacy Project V Foreword

Article excerpt

Volume 84, No. 3

We were honored and humbled to be asked by President, John T. Lay, Jr., to work on and spearhead Privacy Project V in memory of Joan Fullam Irick, former IADC President. Privacy Project V will be published in two editions because of the overwhelming and excellent response of IADC volunteers. The first edition appears in this July 2017 Defense Counsel Journal, and the second edition will be published in the October 2017 Defense Counsel Journal. We formed a Special Board of Editors who worked with their assigned Authors and shepherded along their articles. These authors and editors are to be thanked and recognized for the unending time and effort in writing, editing, rewriting, fact and cite checking and finalizing their articles for review by the Defense Counsel Journal Editorial Board.

While the authors' names will appear with each article, their silent editors may not. Hence, we pay tribute to the following Special Editorial Board: Kurt Gerstner, Robert (Rob) Hunter, Bradford (Brad) Ingram, Cecilia Lahaye, Rex Linder, Eve Masinter, Gordon (Gord) McKee, Kenneth (Ken) Meyer, Richard (Dick) Neumeier, Joseph (Joe) Ryan, Jr., and Michael Smith. We also thank the IADC staff, Amy O'Maley McGuire, Ashley Fitzgerald, Robert Greenlee, and Mary Beth Kurzak; the Defense Counsel Journal Editorial Board, and the IADC Foundation.

Although Joan died before completing her presidential term, her privacy theme lived on and thrives today in her memory. Her planned second volume became The Joan Fullam Irick Privacy Project, Phase II, published in January 2004 by the IADC Foundation. It was renamed in honor of Joan, described by many as the IADC's beloved President.

Phase III came along three years later in 2007 and was dedicated to Joan's husband, Tom Irick, in recognition of not only all Joan and Tom Irick brought to and did for the IADC, but to recognize Tom's continuing active role in the IADC.

In 2011, Phase IV was published and dedicated to the memory of Joan Fullam Irick. Then President, Joe Ryan, considered Phase IV one of his primary initiatives to further Joan's legacy with the IADC. …
