Andy Hahn Honored for Distinguished Leadership by NYLJ

Andrew Hahn has been named a Distinguished Leadership honoree by the New York Law Journal as part of its annual Professional Excellence Awards event.  (Read KALAGNY and AABANY's joint press release here [pdf] and the NYLJ announcement here.)  This year’s honorees will be featured in a special section of the Journal and celebrated at an event hosted by the NYLJ on October 17th.  Andy is a partner at Duane Morris LLP and a longstanding and devoted member of KALAGNY.

We share in NYLJ’s admiration of Andy’s leadership qualities and congratulate him on this well-deserved recognition!

Annual Picnic in Central Park (or thereabouts) - July 29

Event Chair
James Lee

Due to the 90% chance of rain on our Central Park picnic date, we are moving our picnic indoors! We will be gathering at the slightly less pastoral but much more waterproof open space at Karaoke City (map),
22 W 32nd Street, 7th Floor in Koreatown, starting at noon this Saturday, July 29. 

We promise that the indoor version will be just as much food and fun, and every bit as family-friendly (who knows all the words to the Sesame Street theme song?)!

Please click here to RSVP if you haven't already.  We hope to see you there!
