FRDNY's tradition is to begin the luncheon keynote with an industry Top Ten List, prepared by Margaret Holman, John Winkleman and Marc Suntup, and presented each year by the entertaining Margaret Holman. In 2016, in a nod to the passing of the late-night torch, The Top Ten List is now the Top Ten Thank You notes.
