Dear Fellow Lawyers:
As we begin the new bar year, our focus is on the future of our bar association and its continued financial health. The PCBA Board of Directors approved a small dues increase of $25 to help offset the rising operating costs of our monthly luncheons, Side Bar receptions, Law Week activities and the PCBA Annual Meeting. The cost of these events has increased, as have nearly all of the other operating costs of the Association. The board intends to focus on building a reserve to insulate the Association against unexpected future expenditures. We have been advised that our goal should be one year of operating costs which in our case equals approximately $150,000.00. To help us hit this mark, your PCBA board will do its part too, by planning more Continuing Legal Education seminars for you in the coming year. We ask that you please make an effort to attend these CLEs to help us reach our goal. It is very exciting to begin my term as your President, and I thank you for the opportunity you have given me to serve. Please do not hesitate to contact me, or any of your Board Members, if you have any questions, concerns, or wish to become more involved in the work that we do. Here’s to another great year!
Michael Barnes, President
