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.
It is an honor to serve as the Pulaski County Bar Association President for the upcoming 2016-17 bar year. I thank you for that opportunity.
The PCBA is a unique association. While many similar bar associations around the country are experiencing dramatic declines in membership, particularly among younger attorneys, the PCBA has enjoyed record year-after-year membership growth. I like to think our healthy membership numbers can be attributed to the value the Association provides. We will continue to work on increasing that value. We will soon launch a new website with increased interactivity and information. We also are moving our monthly lunchtime meetings to the Little Rock Club, a location many of your find more convenient.
Other valuable PCBA benefits are available to members. We will continue to offer high quality, low cost CLE programs.
We will continue our partnership with Regions Insurance and its Professional Association Division that entitles our members to a discount off insurance rates. And we will continue to organize Law Week and other events throughout the year where PCBA members can come together in professional and social settings to make a difference in the central Arkansas community.
We are able to do all this while charging some of the lowest dues in the country for a bar association of our size. We hope you will consider renewing your PCBA membership. If you have questions, suggestions, or ideas on how the PCBA could better serve its members, please contact me or any member of the board. We have an exciting year ahead. I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming CLE programs, monthly luncheon meetings, and special events.
