2017 President’s Award goes to James C. Coyle.

It is my privilege to announce that James C. Coyle, Colorado Attorney Regulation Counsel, is the recipient of the 2017 NOBC President’s Award.

Jim epitomizes all that is best about NOBC: a visionary in domestic and international regulatory issues, a leader in the movement towards proactive attorney regulation, a passionate advocate for attorney wellbeing, a mentor to both new and experienced regulatory counsel in other jurisdictions, a font of ideas for quality programming for NOBC conferences, and an overall recognized leader within the NOBC. He conducts himself at all times with his mantra of “promoting the public interest” as his guiding principle, thereby improving the profession while protecting the public that all attorneys serve. He does so without self-aggrandizement or seeking reward or recognition for his work. He is the consummate team-player and consensus builder. In short, Jim is one class-act.

Please join me in congratulating Jim. Of course, the official presentation will take place at the NOBC Annual in NYC. In the meantime, I wanted to let you all know the good news.

Congratulations Jim. Well-earned and well-deserved.

Bill
William D. Slease
2016-17 NOBC President
