A Message From Our President

by Keric J. Cushing SCBA President

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF SCBA!

Thank you to all who participated in, and provided sponsorship for, our annual Golf Tournament on July 23, 2016. It was the most profitable event in SCBA’s history! Kudo’s to George, Deana, and all the volunteers for their tireless efforts. It bears repeating that without the continued participation and generous financial support of our local firms, businesses, and practitioners, SCBA would not be able to continue to provide the valuable services that it does. With that said, below are some upcoming events where we hope to see you, and that you continue to provide SCBA with your much-needed sponsorships (where available) to help defray the ever-increasing costs:

I hope you’ve had an opportunity to check out the revised bar association website (Stanbar.org) and have realized that you’re now able to sign up online for all our MCLE Programs and Events. We are continuing to work toward providing additional MCLE Programs for your benefit. If you have any suggestions or specific requests for MCLE Programs/Topics, or have a presentation you’d like to make on a topic of interest and for which MCLE credit can be given, please let us know.

As always, thank you for your support of SCBA.
