I have enjoyed serving as a Co-Chair for the SCDTAA Products Liability Substantive Law Committee for the past two years. It is a great committee and provides many opportunities for networking, publishing and speaking. If you are a member of SCDTAA and have any interest in becoming involved, please let me know. Although I expect to rotate off as Co-Chair, I certainly intend to remain involved.
