On the heels of being awarded a tombstone for completing my three-year term on the Council, I was re-elected to a second term.
This is unprecedented (probably because prior officers had the good sense not to run again!). My co-officer, Mark Ressa, was also re-elected. The unanimous view from our colleagues: Gluttons for punishment.
With no fee bill or resolution to the issue of de-unification/separation, these are extremely challenging times for the Sections. It’s anybody’s guess how we’ll be structured a year from now.
On Thursday, October 10th, I was a couple of days away from taking my place as the "Immediate Past Chair" of the Law Practice Management and Technology Section. Instead, I was elected Co-Vice-Chair of the Council of State Bar Sections along with my good friend Mark Ressa of the Family Law Section. It's a new, three-year commitment with the Bar!
Yes, yes…I know what you're thinking. It has "BS" in the name…
Onward & upward!
