Wishing Lucy Howe-Lopez our best wishes as she celebrates a half centenary! Ralph and I were pleased to welcome Lucy into the HRI/CMBD/GSO orbit at a crucial time in these inter-related endeavours. She joined us at Rue de Vermont through the serendipitous good graces of our mutual friend Virginia Leary.
Lucy became a significant support for these three entities. This included basic office oversight of our many interns and basic administrative responsibilities to keep everything well organized.
At a pivotal moment, she helped move everything to our new quarters on the Route de Ferney. The new setting gave us a well functioning meeting room.
Some of our meetings remained off site, but we used the meeting room for both GSO and CMBD meetings.
Lucy was a crucial member of the team, welcoming speakers and active members of both GSO and CMBD. She was a diligent note-taker at the many meetings that were the heart of both CMBD and GSO.
Throughout her time with us, she was ever cheerful and a dear friend.
And as Lucy advanced in her career with expanded responsibilities at Globethics.ned, we remained ever grateful to her for her time with us – and for her continuing support of GSO and CMBD (renamed CMMD) as a welcome member, participant and friend.
Congratulations, Lucy, for a superb first 50 – and our warmest best wishes for another 50!
