Edwards Wildman is pleased to announce that David Bogan, a partner in the firm's Hartford office, has been elected chair of the board of directors of Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV).
“We are excited to have Attorney Bogan lead the board of directors,” said Karen Jarmoc, CCADV Chief Executive Officer. “He is a staunch advocate who has shown tremendous commitment to helping victims of domestic violence. The guidance and leadership he has provided to CCADV, first as a director and then as vice chair of the board, has already benefited countless victims throughout Connecticut.”
First appointed to the board of directors in 2011, Bogan has led on many key efforts, including strategic fundraising initiatives to support increased public awareness and prevention practices, as well as drafting updated agency bylaws to strengthen the work of the coalition. As an inaugural member of CCADV’s 10x10 Campaign he has been outspoken in his efforts to get more men engaged in prevention and talking about healthy relationships. In 2011, he was recognized as one of CCADV’s First 100 – men who work to improve the lives of domestic violence victims in Connecticut.
“I am humbled and honored to be entrusted with this responsibility, particularly given the importance of this issue in society as several recent high-profile incidents have shown,” said Bogan. “I have been on the board of CCADV since 2011 and it is a privilege to deepen my commitment to CCADV in our united efforts to eliminate domestic violence. These tragic events inspire us all to do more.”
“We are proud of our partner David Bogan and his commitment to improving our communities in Connecticut,” said Alan Levin, the Hartford-based managing partner of Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP. “David and CCADV shine a light on the often hidden issue of domestic violence. David’s passion and drive are reflective of our firm’s commitment to being an integral part of the state’s fabric, and it is our honor to support him.”
