From the President 

 
Wow, what a Winter Meeting on Amelia Island!  We had everything you could want in a meeting - record attendance, great programming and memorable events.  To top it all off, we welcomed more than 35 first-time attendees, celebrated Marv Karp's receipt of the Lifetime Achievement Award and had great weather.   A huge shout out and thanks to Brett and Amanda Preston (Convention Chairs) and Reid and Alison Manley (Program and Registration Chairs) for an extraordinary meeting. 
 
Free registration for our corporate and insurance industry colleagues was a resounding success and contributed to us more than doubling the number of in-house folks we normally have attending our Winter Meeting. We are going to build off this success and offer free registration again at next year's Winter Meeting in Austin, TX.  
 
We recognize that schedules do not always permit everyone to attend the Winter and Annual Meetings, so for the first time we are going to post selected portions of a few plenary programs on the FDCC YouTube channel for you to watch at your convenience. You will all receive a link to view those presentations once they are all uploaded. If you have not already done so, please subscribe to our channel so you can keep up with everything going on in the Federation. Simply click on the Subscribe button in the upper right hand corner and follow the instructions.

Europe Regional Meeting, 10 April 2018, London, UK
We are excited to invite you to the very first European Regional Conference, "2018 Cross Border EU/US Challenges, Approaches & Resolution Strategies". We will convene in London at the office of Jones Day for a full day of programming, and networking opportunities taking place around the conference itself.
 
The program focuses on data security, privacy and GDPR issues, as well as international arbitration. Our speakers and panelists will share their regional and international experience and provide practical advice for the challenges faced by all companies (and law firms) these days. What to do if you're not GDPR ready? What if your cyber security is breached? What if you have resolved your dispute through arbitration but the award cannot be enforced?

Cheers,
On behalf of the 2018 European Regional Conference Planning Committee,
Natalie Vloemans
