Rebecca Baldwin Mantello, Associate, co-chaired the convention committee for the Women's Bar Association of the State of New York's (WBASNY) 2011 Convention held at the Equinox Resort & Spa in Manchester, VT on May 20-May 22nd. WBASNY's Annual Convention provides an opportunity for its members, their families and colleagues to network, attend CLE and socialize in a relaxing setting. The Convention also gives WBASNY the opportunity to present awards, recognizing its members who dedicate themselves to WBASNY's mission to promote the advancement of the status of women in society and the legal profession, and to promote the equal administration of justice. In addition, the Convention serves as an occasion to honor the outgoing officers. This year's keynote speaker, United States District Court Judge Christina Reiss gave a compelling keynote address at the installation dinner, installing the incoming president and officers.
