Welcome to the
Pulaski County Bar Association

Dear Fellow Lawyers,

The Pulaski County Bar Association 2018-2019 bar year is upon us and I am so honored to serve as your president! The PCBA was born 70 years ago as the “Little Rock Bar Association” and changed its name by board vote in 1950 to the one we still use today. Since then, the PCBA has grown in membership and tradition into an association that stands for professionalism, collegiality, and service. In fact, it is the mission of the PCBA 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.

The PCBA is a very active bar association of over 1,000 members who participate in monthly luncheons, CLE programs, socials, and service. Together, we foster a strong community of lawyers from all areas of practice and, thankfully, this means that we often see a familiar face when we walk into a courtroom, deposition, mediation, or meeting. Friends, I know you value this as much as I do, and I thank you for your memberships and contributions to our community.

In the coming year, we have much to look forward to, so mark your calendars! Our September 14th luncheon will feature a panel of opponents and proponents of Arkansas Ballot Issue 1. Our October 12th luncheon will host a lively debate regarding the upcoming elections. After the election, we will host and honor veterans during our very special Veteran’s Day luncheon on November 9th and hear from retired three star Lieutenant General George Allen Crocker, a native of Russellville. Please know that we would be honored to host your loved ones who served as our guests, free of charge.

In addition to our Friday luncheons, we, along with the Pulaski County Bar Foundation, will hold several days of CLE this fall, so stay tuned for that opportunity. As always, expect to see invitations to socials and other fun events throughout the year! Finally, this year we will be partnering closely with the Center for Arkansas Legal Services to keep our members informed of all of the ways we can participate in pro bono opportunities, which run the gamut from long-term cases to half-day clinics, and more.

The official PCBA bar year began on July 1st and will end on June 30th, 2019. You will find a dues notice and selfaddressed envelope included with this letter; however, we welcome online payments by credit card through our website at www. pulaskibar.com. In order to effectively budget, we would appreciate receiving your membership payments by October 1st.

As we gear up for the upcoming bar year, please contact me, our Executive Director Carol King, or any member of our board if you would like to share your thoughts or become more involved. Together, we will continue the mission of the PCBA to serve our members, our profession, and the public, and have a wonderful time doing so!

Sincerely,


Erin O’Leary – PCBA President
