Darcy Gaechter to be Opening Reception
Special Guest
July 12, 2021

At this year’s Law & Industry Conference, CDIA and sponsor Hudson Cook LLP are pleased to announce author, Darcy Gaechter, the first woman to kayak the entire Amazon River from source to sea, will join the CDIA Law & Industry Conference’s Opening Reception as our special guest!

Darcy is an adventurer, record-setter, and boundary-breaker, who will take us along her heart pounding journey across the Amazon- sharing her amazing feat that challenges stereotypes and proves that personal limits cannot be defined by anyone but yourself. Her story demonstrates how to find the courage to “do the undoable” and overcome even the most daunting of odds.
