July Committee Meeting

REMEMBERING RON WOOD- A LEADER, A FRIEND
 


At its upcoming meeting, the Property Law section of the New Orleans Bar Association will remember our dear departed friend Ron Wood. Ron was a former chair of the section, and a long standing leader in the Louisiana title insurance industry. We will all miss his affirming, productive presence professionally, but even more, his personal friendship and integrity. He was a man of superb intellect, high morals, and distinguished public service. Please think of a topic or two on title matters and insurance to discuss at our meeting. Ron would have loved the discussion, and I’m sure he will be with us in spirit, smiling that smile as he always did.
