Letter from the Chair of the Forum

By Jason Evans

Casey Gerry Schenk Francavilla Blatt & Penfield LLP

Dear Colleagues,

Summer is here, and so is the Forum's summer mixer! Join me at Wine Steals in Cardiff on August 18 to cool down over a casual glass of wine (which always tastes better by the beach). Make a friend or gain a contact all while having a good time with other emerging lawyers. See details and register here.

My hope is that the Forum can provide events with a summer atmosphere year-round.

Speaking of summer, nothing says summer like surfing. Wetsuits, the SDCBA's new official surfing group, had a great first paddle-out. Check back here to join the next! Wetsuits is a great example of how emerging lawyers can get involved with the SDCBA and meet new colleagues outside of after-work mixers.

Not a surfer? How about a reader? The Bar also hosts a book club. Be sure to visit the SDCBA website for updates about the next book club session and to discover all the other ways you can expand your network through the Bar.

And don't forget that as a Bar member, you can work and meet with clients at the Bar Center. They have everything you could need for a temporary office. 

Whether you're at an SDCBA mixer, hanging out in the member lounge, or about to hit the waves with Wetsuits, snap a pic and email it to bar@sdcba.org. You could appear in the next Scene At or one of the SDCBA's social media pages!
