Welcome to 2018! On behalf of the Gate City Bar Association, I wish you a year filled with joy, peace and prosperity.
As we embark on our organization’s 70th Anniversary Year, we are mindful of how our dedicated members have helped us to arrive at this point in our history. Whether through planning, participating in, and/or sponsoring continuing education classes for attorneys and paralegals, workshops for law students, or networking and social activities for all, we would not have made it to our 70th Anniversary Year, without the tireless efforts of our members. As your president-elect, I want to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for our members’ past efforts. I also want to implore you – as a first time or lifetime member to join us in 2018.
We have big goals for 2018, and we cannot achieve them without you. I am excited to announce that this year, amongst other things, we will establish a Young Lawyers Division, launch a Civil Rights Initiative, and once again provide free legal services for members of our Atlanta community and support and mentor law students. In addition to these opportunities for career and personal development, we will intentionally set aside time for fun and comradery.
Over the next few weeks, you we will have three opportunities to partner with us:
1. January 13, 2018: Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation’s (“AVLF”) Saturday Lawyer Program.
2. January 16, 2018: Installation of our 2018 Executive Committee at the Fulton County Government Center; and
3. January 27, 2018: Black Law Students Winter Mock Interview/Resume Review Workshop at King and Spalding.
2018 is going to be a stellar year for our organization. Please join us by paying your 2018 membership dues, attending our various events and workshops, and jumping in to help where you can. I look forward to seeing you and collaborating with you this year.
In service to Gate City,
