...Karen E. Richardson is proud to be the president of the Western New York Chapter of the Women's Bar Association for the State of New York and looks forward to this year's installation dinner slated for September.
..."Our fiscal year coincides with that of WBASNY, so I took over from Melissa Nickson on June 1," Richardson explained. "And that gives the new slate of officers a couple of months to prepare for the combined installation dinner and our chapter's 20th anniversary."

Finding Her Niche
...A graduate of Orchard Park High School, Richardson attended American University and earned her bachelor's degree in international relations in 1990. She landed a job in Washington working for a non-governmental agency, but was disappointed to discover that the politics of securing grant money and maintaining the organization often overshadowed the agency's educational goals.
