Fall is a busy time for the Bar Association. Check out the calendar if you haven’t already – there is a lot going on! Here are some highlights: In very recent news, our CASA fundraising event on October 6th was a raging success, raising $30,000 for this worthy cause! Thanks to all of our members and supporting firms for their contributions. Check out the photos on our Facebook page: www.Facebook.com/CCCBA
Our MCLE Spectacular has a very impressive line-up this year. The calendar insert in the center of this magazine lists all of the details. Our sections are hosting the great seminars you have come to expect, but even beyond those, our outstanding speakers should not be missed:
- 8:30-9:30 a.m.: Professor Jesse H. Choper will be reviewing recent leading decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court
- 12:00-1:30 p.m.: The Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, The Honorable Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, presents “A Conversation with the Chief Justice.”
- 4:00-5:00 p.m.: Judge Vaughn Walker is speaking on “the Dynamics of a High Profile Case”, based on his experiences in the past year.
We are fortunate to have such high-profile, topical and interesting speakers, and we expect a sell-out crowd. Register early to reserve your spot! Finally, our membership renewal drive is officially underway. Renewing your membership takes just seconds through our website. The first 250 members who renew online will be entered into a drawing to win a $250 CCCBA advertising package, so renew right away to get in on that opportunity!
While you are at it, if you know attorneys who aren’t members of the CCCBA but should be – please let them know that now is the time to join. We always appreciate our members getting the word out about what we do for them. As always, if you have any questions or ideas about the CCCBA, please feel free to contact me directly. I welcome the input.
