Message From the President
LACBA has experienced significant changes this past bar year, some planned and others unexpected. This presents us with a great opportunity for our members and the association.
Charting the Course of LACBA’s Future
After fifteen years, LACBA General Counsel Clark Brown will retire, effective June 2. We appreciate his many years of commitment and dedication to our association. This announcement was unexpected, and we have changed course from searching for a permanent CEO to hiring an Interim CEO to ensure that our operations and business have sufficient support and guidance in light of Clark’s departure. What will remain constant is this year’s focus on our association’s priorities as to both the legal profession and the community. The board has approved two projects that will help guide this conversation: (1) a governance project that will help our board to update our governance model and association rules, and (2) a strategic plan project to gather input from members and stakeholders in order to evaluate our association’s priorities and focus.
I hope you will join me in charting the course of LACBA’s future.
