Last night at the Litigation Section Annual meeting a few of us were joking that we had just seen each other the night before at the Rochester Legal Diversity Clerkship Program welcome reception on Tuesday night.
So for those of you that just LOVE your MCBA time, and simply can’t get enough of me, your colleagues and fellow MCBA members, here are the top 5 things to do in the closing weeks of this bar year.
First, we have the installation of our 118th President Diane Cecero, with gratitude to our outgoing president Connie Walker on Thursday, June 13th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at 6:00 pm.
Second, how often will you have the opportunity to schmooze with the Judges from the New York State Court of Appeals, in upstate New York? This is probably a one-time deal! So take advantage of joining the lawyers and judges of the Monroe, Erie and Onondaga County Bar Associations, and the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers and gather with us on Monday, June 17th at the Woodcliff Hotel & Spa at 5:30 pm. Click here for more information. Please RSVP to Ginny LaCour at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 585-546-1817.
Third, on Tuesday, June 18th we are very excited to have former Chief Judge Judith Kaye back at the Telesca Center at 12:15 pm for some dialogue about lawyers in transition. This event is informal, and free and open to all MCBA members. Light lunch will be served. Seating is limited!! Come join us, even if your transition is 5 or 25 years away. Please RSVP to Diane Hill at email@example.com or at 585-546-1817.
Fourth, then just hours later at 6:00 pm we will be gathering with Judge Kaye and all of our young lawyers at the 5th Annual Silent Auction to benefit Rochester Teen Court at Colgate Rochester Divinity School. Don’t miss! Come cheer on these extraordinary young leaders. Click here for a registration form.
And finally, just before the Bar year ends, on Thursday, June 27th is the Family Law Section’s Annual Summer Party at Debbie Indivino’s house at 5:30 pm. Some say, this is the party to be at! Click here for the registration form.
And between now and June 28, we have 6 CLEs, including the annual Bankruptcy Conference! Click here for the full list.
That’s a wrap on the 2012-13 Bar Year! Thank you to all of you that made it happen.
Thx for checking in…
