I am excited to be serving as President of the Professional Liability Defense Federation in 2017-2018. The PLDF is an organization made up of attorneys and industry members dedicated to the defense of various types of professionals, including attorneys, health care professionals, insurance agents and brokers, design professionals, real estate brokers, and fiduciaries. Our mission is to advance the effectiveness of those who defend professionals through education, training, and the exchange of information. We accomplish that mission through providing our members with timely and informative articles in the PLDF Quarterly, through the resources available on our website, and by encouraging all of our members to attend the PLDF Annual Meeting, which has a full slate of programming targeted directly and exclusively to professional liability defense.

Our next annual meeting is in New Orleans, from October 3-5, 2018. If you attend one of our meetings, I guarantee that you will become a PLDF booster and a regular attendee. We offer high quality CLE and CE programming, plenty of opportunities for networking, and the opportunity to form friendships and referral relationships with industry professionals and defense attorneys from all across the country.

If you are not yet a member, please consider joining. As a new and growing organization, we offer early opportunities for leadership and exposure, including committee roles and speaking opportunities at the annual meeting. Our online members' directory is also a powerful resource for making and receiving referrals, and if you are an industry professional, for locating professional liability defense counsel in a particular jurisdiction.

And if you are already a member, make a pledge to yourself in 2018 to submit an article for the PLDF Quarterly, and to attend the annual meeting in New Orleans in October. We all need to engage in business and professional development, but PLDF is committed to making your 2018 business development plan easier and more enjoyable!


Erin K. Higgins, PLDF President 2017-2018, Trial Partner, Conn Kavanaugh Rosenthal Peisch & Ford, LLP (Boston, MA)
