The Philadelphia chapter of the National Association of Corporate Directors held a breakfast event in Wilmington at the University and Whist Club.
The panel discussion, titled “Board Special Committees and Investigations,” was moderated by retired Delaware Supreme Court Chief Justice Myron T. Steele, a Potter Anderson & Corroon partner.
The discussion was led by Kelley B. Hodge, Elliott Greenleaf of counsel; Hal Erskine, Erskine Financial Services president; William M. Lafferty, Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell partner; and Robert Craig, chief digital officer of Walletron Inc.
Hodge rejoined Elliott Greenleaf after serving as the 25th district attorney of Philadelphia.

Upon her election, Hodge became the first African-American woman to lead the District Attorney’s Office in its 167-year history and the first African-American woman to lead a District Attorney’s Office in Pennsylvania, said Elliott Greenleaf in a press release.
