It is with great sorrow that we share that NSDA Founding President Larry Kolasa passed away. We honor his legacy and commitment to our community.
This past year has been anything but normal. In response, the NSDA adapted quickly to provide continued service and support to our community’s needs. NSDA President Charlie Reavis reflects on the many silver linings discovered during 2020.
Bruce Menk is no stranger to the NSDA. He served on our Board from 1993 to 1999 and was President for two of those years. He has served as pro bono Legal Counsel since he stepped down from the Board. With his recent retirement, he will no longer serve in that role, and will rejoin the NSDA Board.
We are excited to welcome Susan H. Boyles as the new pro bono Legal Counsel for the NSDA. Susan is a Partner at the international law firm of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP. This contribution to the NSDA is very personal to her, as she has had spasmodic dysphonia since 1996.
