By Howard Kenison, chair-elect, ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER)
In Denver, at the time of this writing, we were entering week seven of a state-imposed stay-at-home order. Remote working is now routine.
Without the daily commute to the office, I’m finding more time to reach out and stay connected with Section members, by phone, email, and virtually.
We’re a big country. The pandemic’s impact on our members’ work can vary based on local, state, and regional factors—be they related to the capacity of health systems, as well as economic and social factors.
I asked two past Section chairs, Alexandra Dapolito Dunn, Assistant Administrator, Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, EPA, in Washington, DC, and Bill Penny, Partner, Burr & Forman LLP, in Nashville, to weigh in on how the pandemic is affecting their practices. Each graciously responded here.
