Toronto Lawyers Association announces Erin O’Donovan as PresidentJune 21, 2022
Erin, who has been a TLA Director of the Board since 2014, was elected President April 27, 2022. She shared a few words about her presidency in an interview with Legal Matters Canada:
“I am a solicitor, so my background is different than many of the other board members. Originally, a big part of what I brought to the table was knowledge of corporate governance, and proper organizational structure,” she says. “Now, I would say that what I bring to this job first of all is commitment. It has been a privilege to get to know and understand the issues that are central to our members.”
Erin is also an active volunteer in the Toronto Lawyers Feed the Hungry Program and when not engaged in volunteer work is the Manager, Corporate Finance Branch at the Ontario Securities Commission.
The Toronto Lawyers Association (“TLA”) is the voice of 3,400 members who practice law in all disciplines principally in Toronto. Our mission is to promote and provide knowledge, advocacy and community by offering comprehensive, up-to-date legal resources; assistance and legal research from professional and experienced library staff; CPD accredited education programs; various newsletters; the Annual TLA Awards Gala as well as many other social events.
The TLA is centrally located in “the Rotunda” at 361 University, where our library, networking and social events space in the Courthouse provides many opportunities for our members to connect with lawyers and judges in the Toronto legal community.
