The awards will be made to individuals in two categories: a national award for philanthropic work undertaken in Ireland and an international philanthropist award. The Taoiseach, Mr. Bertie Ahern, TD welcomed the introduction of the Awards and said: I want to congratulate the Community Foundation for Ireland on their announcement of the Philanthropist of the Year Awards. I believe the awards will highlight the need and opportunities for more philanthropic activity in Ireland and also to encourage more of the affluent beneficiaries of Ireland’s successful economy to give back to the community.Tina Roche, Chief Executive of CFI, said the foundation wanted to shine a light on those special individuals who are engaged in putting their energy, commitment and resources together to make a significant long term contribution, both here in Ireland and throughout the world.

Closing date for nominations will be 12 October. An independent panel of adjudicators will announce a shortlist on 1 November and will then select the winners. The awards will be presented at an event in Dublin on 15 November 2007 – International Philanthropy Day.Surveys show that there are now more than 100,000 millionaires in Ireland, and over 5,000 people with assets of ‚€25 million plus and a significant number with assets over ‚€100 million. We want more of these successful people to think strategically about their wealth, to understand that they can make a really positive impact on their communities with that wealth, said Ms Roche. www.communityfoundation.ielast_img read more

Florida lawyers are federalized

first_imgFlorida lawyers are federalized May 15, 2006 Regular News Florida lawyers are federalized Four sections sponsor CLE event in Washington, D.C. Greeted by blooming flowers and sunshine, four Florida Bar groups hosted The Federal Seminar 2006 in Washington, D.C., in April.The three-day program, jointly sponsored by the Government Lawyer, Environmental and Land Use Law, Appellate Practice sections and the Out-of-State Practitioners Division provided opportunities for 25 Florida lawyers to explore topics of federal law in some of the nation’s most prestigious buildings.“Through this program, Florida’s lawyers gain access and experiences that they probably could not otherwise obtain,” said Keith Rizzardi, co-chair of seminar. “organizing this program on behalf of so many groups in The Florida Bar, and by arranging for such unique locations, we’ve also been able to obtain first-rate speakers for the events.”Registrants for the program attended oral arguments and a swearing-in ceremony at the U.S. Supreme Court, followed by a continuing legal education program, held in the Court’s West Conference Room, with Deputy Solicitor General Thomas Hungar and environmental law casebook author Robert Percival. Three past presidents of the Federal Circuit Bar led a discussion at the Florida House on federal circuit practice. The White House Council on Environmental Quality hosted a “Conversation with CEQ” and wine and cheese reception at the Old Executive Office Building’s Indian Treaty Room, next to the White House. And agency officials, lobbyists, and nonprofit advocacy groups led panel discussions related to APA litigation and ethical lobbying at the U.S. Department of Interior.The Federal Seminar 2006 also had a unique social component.“When will any of us get another chance to lunch with the clerk of the Supreme Court, take a private tour of the Interior Building, raid the White House Airlift Operations gift shop, and pose for photos in front of the West Wing?” asked Ward Griffin, the other seminar co-chair.The Government Lawyer Section initially began this program with The Federal Seminar 2004, held at the Supreme Court, Justice Department, National Archives, and Library of Congress. The program leaders expect The Federal Seminar to continue to grow and evolve.“We hope that this program will become an essential CLE for people seeking state and federal government and administrative practice certification,” said Rizzardi, referring to the proposed certification program currently awaiting final approval by the Florida Supreme Court.“Ideally, we’ll host the Washington, D.C., program every even-numbered year,” Griffin said. “The challenge will be keeping the group sizes manageable, and getting all the needed security clearances. But I know we’re gaining momentum, because I’m already getting inquiries about when we plan to host this program again.”last_img read more
