OUR NEXT PROGRAM
September 10, 2014 — Dinner: Judicial Forum - Getting to Know You!
Message from President Lisa Dreyer
I am very pleased to have been given the opportunity to be City Club's president for 2014-2015. I look forward to carrying on the fine tradition begun over 30 years ago. I am excited about the growing membership, positive energy and flow of great ideas propelling us forward this year. I will always welcome your ideas and feedback. Thank you for your continued interest in and support of City Club.
How many times have you stared blankly at the ballot, not knowing who the judicial candidates are? How should you vote when you don’t even recognize their names? Purchase your tickets now to the September 10th dinner and you will be able to decide for yourself who is the best candidate in the contested judicial races. Our own member, *Judge Kitty Ann Van Doorninck will be the moderator of this program. Judge Van Doorninck will ask questions for clarifying which candidate you’d like to see on the bench.
*Judge Kitty-Ann van Doorninck was appointed to the Pierce County Superior Court in October, 1998, and she is currently Pierce County Juvenile Court Presiding Judge. She serves on numerous Pierce County Superior Court committees. Between September 2003 and December 2007, Judge van Doorninck was the Family Court Judge, handling high conflict custody matters and emphasizing nonadversarial resolutions. Prior to her appointment to the bench, she was a Pierce County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney litigating both criminal and civil cases, as well as acting as Administrative Deputy from 1989–1996. She is a past trustee of the Superior Court Judges’ Association, past trustee of the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association, and past member of the YWCA Women’s Shelter Fundraising Committee. In addition to other community work, Judge van Doorninck is on the Board of Trustees for the Safe Streets Campaign and is actively involved in the American Leadership Forum. Judge van Doorninck has also served as Chair of the Superior Court Judges’ Association Family and Juvenile Law Committee and in that capacity served on several other statewide committees.
