Melissa Forshey Schwind

The Professional Development Consortium's (PDC) Annual Summer Conference was one for the record books, and Melissa Forshey Schwind, Ward and Smith's Director of Attorney Recruiting, Professional Development, and D&I, was an integral part of the team that ensured its success.

The 2023 Summer Conference, which took place from July 20-22 at the Marriott Charlotte City Center in Charlotte, is a gathering of legal professionals that offers exceptional learning and networking opportunities. 

Melissa played a vital role in ensuring the program's success, serving as co-chair of the planning committee for the first time after her second consecutive year on the planning committee.

In a Facebook post, she expressed her gratitude to everyone involved in making this year a rebounding success, stating:

"I was honored to have been named one of the Co-Chairs of the 2023 Professional Development Consortium's Annual Summer Conference in Charlotte, NC, this time last year. After a year of working with my amazing Co-Cahir, Planning Committee, and Association Management Company, we hosted one of the largest-attended conferences in the Consortium's history. I'm so thankful to have had this amazing opportunity and to work for a Firm that fully supports my professional aspirations." 

PDC is an esteemed organization comprised of individuals responsible for creating and overseeing training and continued professional development for legal professionals, aspiring legal professionals, and other professionals in law firms, law schools, government agencies, and corporations.
