College Columns May 2019 - Page 3

Ahh, refreshing! That was the prevalent sentiment on the tip of everyone’s tongue at our Spring Coronado meetings. The atmosphere seemed lighter, brighter, and enhanced by fresh ocean air and an upbeat vibe that permeated a very collegial weekend. The majestic Hotel Del Coronado made an appropriate backdrop for the festivities, including the regal

Crown Room as the setting for the Induction Ceremony and awards. For an interesting footnote to the history of the Del, see the article about some early visitors to the hotel by Ken Cannon, infra.

Our College leadership conducted succinct business meetings and College staff worked hard to keep us all moving in the right direction… whether to a beachside reception or the upstairs meeting room and final luncheon.

In this issue of the Columns, we express our appreciation to outgoing editor Lynnette Warman, who shepherded this publication for several years. We welcome our new Co-Editor Deborah Langehennig of Austin, Texas to this, her first edition.

Our continued goal is to reach out to all Fellows to encourage your participation in the Columns as an open forum for substantive bankruptcy material, ideas for the College, reports from leadership, and items reflective of the collegiality between our Fellows and the efforts to enhance the good works of the College. Our items in “Focus on Fellows,” “Beyond the Columns,” “Between the Columns,” oral history teasers, and plentiful reports and other submissions in this issue underscore an increasing participation for which we are grateful. See you in the fall in D.C.!
