ROCKVILLE, Md., May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Charles E. Smith Life Communities (CESLC) announced the installation

of Alan M. Freeman, a partner at Blank Rome LLP's Washington, D.C. office, as Chair of the Board of Governors. The new board installation took place during the 107th Annual Meeting of the

A graduate of Columbia University and George Washington University Law School, Freeman is active in the civic community of Montgomery County, as well as the Maryland and District of Columbia legal communities.

"Alan will be a tremendous asset to CESLC," said President/CEO Bruce J. Lederman.

I look forward to working with him and the entire slate of officers."

"I started volunteering at the Hebrew Home in tribute to my grandparents," said Freeman. "So for me, election as Chair of the Board of Governors has a special context and meaning. Every time I walk onto the CESLC campus, I'm reminded that we are helping someone's grandparents. This organization is part of the bedrock of our community, and the vital role CESLC plays in service to our family and friends will become more critical in the years ahead. I'm honored and humbled by the Board's confidence in me."
