Welcome to the new bar year! It is with great excitement that I assume the role of Chair of the Solo and Small Firm Section for the coming year. I would like to thank Terry Szuczko for his leadership over the past year, through a time of great change with the State Bar, and for his mentorship as I take on this new job.
I have had the honor of serving on the Executive Committee of the Section for four years. One lesson I have learned in my time of service is that the need to reach our members in meaningful ways is of paramount importance; if you do not see the work of the Section as a benefit to you, then your membership is of little personal value. I firmly believe that membership in this Section is worth its weight in gold, so my number one goal this year is to reach each and every member in a useful way, to bring you value for your membership dollars. We will do this through programming, publications, and discounts and freebies you may not have known come with your membership.
