to think creatively and improve operations, and establishing a
solid working relationship with the Board of Directors and leaders
in the community.
I look forward to the remainder of 2019 and my term as
President. I cannot wait to see how we grow together in the
coming months.

County Recognition Award
Berks County was well-represented at the 53rd Annual
Conference of County Bar Leaders in State College in February.
We had 10 representatives at this year's conference. Once again,
Berks County was recognized as a leader in Pennsylvania, earning
a County Recognition Award for the "The Proper Role of
Notaries" campaign.
The community engagement project spearheaded by former
BCBA Community Service Manager Ana Lopez-Vives included
a presentation in Reading City Council Chambers about the
new Uniform Notary Public Act and a City ordinance regulating
notaries, workshops at the Reading Public Library and to the
local chapter of the United States Chaplains Association about
what notaries can and cannot do, and advertising in Palo magazine
and a local Spanish-language radio station.
Congratulations to Ana, Executive Director Emeritus Donald
F. Smith Jr., the Board of Directors, and everyone who made the
program successful. Efforts will continue to aggressively combat

fraudulent actions by notaries and other con artists who
scam clients and lack the credentials and integrity to provide
competent legal counsel.

Encouraging Collegiality
It's right there in our mission statement: Encouraging
collegiality among members. I'd like to think the reason it is
one of our guiding principles because getting to know one
another makes our Community of Lawyers stronger and allows
us to develop relationships that make us all better attorneys.
During the first quarter of 2019, we have provided several
opportunities for members to develop rapport and socialize.
Those opportunities included our "Legal Spirits Luau" in
February, our March Madness Party at Third and Spruce, and
the annual Jazz Fest dinner.
Maintaining an outstanding working relationship with our
Bench is also part of our effort to foster collegiality. And at the
end of March, we hosted a dinner and were pleased to enjoy an
evening of great food and conversation with our Judges.
Coming up, we have the annual golf tournament, trap
shoot, and picnic on May 22, and a trip to see the NL-East
leading Philadelphia Phillies on June 27.
Join us and have some fun and socialize with your
colleagues at these events.

Our Commitment
for 50 Years
(and Counting...)

We are dedicated to our clients, and to our
community. Entrusted with their assets, we take our
obligation very seriously. Our commitment to their
best interest is the same today as it was when we
opened in 1969. We celebrate our 50th anniversary
this year with clients and community in mind.
Thank you for putting your trust in us for half a
century. We pledge to earn it every day.

Integrity, Service, Performance.
