We are celebrating a twenty-year relationship with Loyola Law School as we announce our Loyola X Symposium to be held January 18-19, 2024 at the Long Beach Hyatt. A special thank you to Ryan Baker, who is both Chair of this event and the Sponsorship Committee, and to Mia Blackler and Scott Sackett for putting together a fantastic package of educational programs. Kevin Singer has provided us with a very interesting interview with Brietta R. Clark, recently promoted to Interim Dean of Loyola Law School after serving as Associate Dean for Faculty since 2015.

Our focus on education continues with our recent participation in the California Bankruptcy Forum’s Thirty- fifth Annual Insolvency Conference and combined live and virtual education programs throughout California. Please let us know if there is a topic you would like us to address or a topic you would like to present.

We will all get to know more about Richard Munro who is profiled in this issue. It took a search halfway around the world to New Zealand to find Richard; he joined the CRF Board at the beginning of this year.

Our newest Board member is Teresa Gorman from Fiduciary Real Estate Services, an active sponsor of CRF. Teresa is a Broker Associate and in-house counsel. She has extensive experience as an attorney specializing in trust and estate issues and has participated in CRF symposiums as a vendor and an attendee of education programs and social events.

Our contributing columnists have once again done a stellar job. Thank you, Peter Davidson, Chad Combs, and Ryan Baker. We appreciate the contribution of informative and timely articles by Dan Miggins, Amy Olsen, Ryan Griffith, Doug Wilson, and Ryan Baker.
