Conference & Legislative Successes

As 2007 draws to a close, we thank all of you for your participation in the Conference of California Bar Associations. We are proud of our accomplishments this year which include a great 2007 Conference chaired by our own wee Scottish lass, Joan Stone, another tremendous legislative year made possible by the brilliance of the resolutions put together through our affiliate associations and the miracle work of our lobbyists, Robyn Black and Aaron Read and Associates. We continue to increase our visibility in Sacramento and as legislators become increasingly aware of our constituent’s legal expertise, our ability to aid the legislative process multiplies.

We are looking forward to another busy and productive year in 2008. If you haven’t already marked your calendars, do so now. Our annual Jim Pfeiffer Dinner will be in San Francisco on May 8, 2008 where we will honor longtime Conference Delegate Joanne Garvey. More news and complete information will be coming your way early next year.

And, of course, save the date for the 2008 Conference, September 26-28, 2008 in Monterey.

With our 2007 successes drawing to an end and our 2008 accomplishments still ahead we are focusing on how we can continue to improve the organization. We are mindful of your comments and requests and are taking them into consideration as we plan the years ahead. To continue to expand and improve requires financing. Like every other volunteer/non-profit organization, we rely on our constituents for support. Unlike other bar associations we don’t have membership fees. We depend on your largesse to survive. Simply stated, we need your financial support. Please contribute to our year-end campaign.

Other ways to help include volunteering for a committee (Resolutions Committee or Conference Operations). If you are interesting in participating, send an e-mail to ExecDir@cdcba.org indicating which committee you would like to serve on.

We look forward to another great year of working together to Serve Justice By Improving the Law!
