Pulaski County Bar Association pcba
The mission of the Pulaski County Bar Association is to serve our members, our profession and the public by promoting professionalism, collegiality, education and service among members of the bench and bar to advance the cause of justice in our community.
I am excited to serve as your Pulaski County Bar Association President for the 2017-18 bar year. The PCBA is truly one of the most vibrant bar associations in the country, and this year I hope to work with the Board of Directors to continue the PCBA’s excellent tradition of serving its members.
Towards that end, there will be an increased emphasis on networking events among PCBA members. Popular events like PCBA Law Week, Last Chance CLE, pro bono opportunities, monthly lunches at the Little Rock Club, and Side Bar Socials will be back and better than ever!
We will also begin extensive publications of member profiles and significant achievements that will result in increased exposure of members to those who are not yet PCBA members and also to the non-lawyer community. We will highlight members on our Facebook page and website, and through our continued partnership with the Daily Record. I hope you find the PCBA website relevant and informative concerning upcoming PCBA activities.
We have continued to grow our Facebook page and I strongly encourage you to join our community through that forum. If there is some exciting news, success, retirement, etc., then please call or send an email or Facebook message to Carol King, me, or one of our two social media chairs – Chris Stevens of Fuqua Campbell and Tori Jones of Rose Law Firm – so that we may ensure the Association is aware of the occasion and can join in the celebration.
Our social activities have continued to grow in number, budget, and attendance. I have enjoyed seeing many of you taking advantage of one of the best member benefits. We will continue to provide new and exciting social activities for our members.
Thanks in large part to our continued partnership with Regions Insurance and its Professional Association Division, we are also able to offer some of the lowest rates of any attorney organization. I hope you will all continue to be a part of the Association and take advantage of the other opportunities offered by Regions to improve your practice.
I look forward to hearing from you regarding how the Board can better serve your needs this year!
Lee D. Short, President
