Mellon Financial to Receive YLD Vision Award at Annual Banquet

PHILADELPHIA—Mellon Financial will receive the YLD Vision Award at the Philadelphia Bar Association Young Lawyers Division’s (YLD) annual banquet on Wednesday, February 22 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. Accepting on behalf of Mellon Financial will be Michael C. Stewart, who coordinates Mellon’s activities with the YLD. The banquet begins at noon and will include a keynote address from Michael Stiles, Philadelphia Phillies Vice President for Operations and Administration.

The YLD Vision Award is presented by the Young Lawyers Division on an annual basis to an entity or other organization - whether law firm, business corporation, non-profit, or other group - that has provided outstanding support to the YLD in the fulfillment of its mission; namely, to promote and preserve the interests of young lawyers, improve the quality of the legal system, provide a forum for the exchange of views among young lawyers, encourage the professional development of young lawyers through educational and service programs, participate in the growth and advancement of the legal profession, and encourage young lawyers to represent deserving clients on a pro bono basis. During 2005, Mellon Financial partnered with the YLD for a summer social as well as for a holiday party.
