Letter from the Chair of the Forum

By Jason Evans

Casey Gerry Schenk Francavilla Blatt & Penfield LLP

Dear Colleagues,

Serving in a leadership capacity is such a great way to develop new skills while fostering career growth and meeting countless new colleagues and friends in our community. If you have thought about getting involved with the SDCBA, now is your chance! A few exciting leadership opportunities are available for new lawyers. 

The Forum for Emerging Lawyers’ Executive Committee helps plan events for new lawyer members, works with SDCBA Sections to make sure programs relevant and important to new attorneys are offered, and more. See how to get involved with the Committee next year here.

The following Executive Committees for SDCBA Sections are in need of someone to serve in the New Lawyer Member At-Large position:

  • ADR 
  • Bankruptcy 
  • Immigration 
  • Insurance and Bad Faith 
  • Labor and Employment 
  • Social Security

No experience as a leader? No worries – experience isn’t necessary. Submit your self-nomination to Heather Breen at hbreen@sdcba.org

I hope to see you around the SDCBA soon!
