It is officially here, the end of my term as Chair for the Solo and Small Firm Section. To say my last two years as Chair were "unique" would not begin to cover it! What started out at the end of 2019 as a typical year quickly turned into a complete lockdown for my first term and a slow emergence into some sense of normality for my second term.
Through it all, I cannot express my gratitude and sure pride enough for my fellow executive committee members who not only persevered through these extraordinary circumstances but ensured that our section was publishing content, webinars and programming that served and supported our members. The SSF section also managed to publish its own book, Opening and Managing a Law Office: Go Solo, Win Clients, and Be Your Own Boss. Not only did our Excom members continue with their regular committee work, but many took on additional advocacy roles by joining CLA’s Project 2021, the Racial Justice Committee and pro bono projects within their communities.
