O'Neil, Joseph E., Defense Counsel Journal


A year ago, Dick Neumeier, after serving as Editor of the Defense Counsel Journal for 22 years, handed the reins of the LADC's signature legal journal to M.C. Sungaila. In his farewell remarks, Dick borrowed from the inaugural inspiration of President John F. Kennedy when he challenged our membership to -

"Ask not what the Defense Counsel Journal can do you for you. Ask what you can do for the Defense Counsel Journal!'

Well, thanks to M.C. Sungaila, her editorial team, and our members, the DCJ has not missed a beat. Our members have embraced Dick Neumeier's challenge! In this, our 82nd volume, the DCJ has memorialized the keynote address of Prime Minister George Papandreou at our Midyear Meeting on Marco Island and continued to offer enhanced visibility to the IADC's growing amicus program by publishing briefs in support of issues critical to our corporate clients.

In the past two years, the IADC and its valued members have attended successful Regional Meetings and substantive programs in Paris, Milan, Vienna, London, Stuttgart, Lisbon, Singapore, Sydney, Hong Kong, Sao Paolo, and throughout the United States and Canada. Tripp's global leadership of the IADC is unprecedented and the For Law. For Life, theme of his tenure has truly enhanced the value of relationships, business development and education for our members.

20/20 Vision

The IADC is in the home stretch toward its Centennial celebration in 2020. In the coming year, the leadership of the organization will continue its ongoing efforts to add greater value and increased visibility to the IADC and its members throughout the world. In April, the Board of Directors and the IADC staff began to work on a strategic plan that will ultimately define the association in its 100th year. …
