If you want to know why the Bench Bar Conference
was such a success this year, and why we had the most
attendees in the history of our Association (161), this group
of people is why. Greg Nardi is why. The BCBA Staff (Barb,
Emily, Kristen, Dylan, Lynn) is why. Dan Keane is why. Thank
you Committee, Greg, the Staff, and Dan for your tireless
commitment to making the Conference a true success.

WHAT A YEAR IT WAS TO CHAIR
THE BENCH BAR COMMITTEE.
I've received many congratulatory emails, calls and texts
since the Conference ended. And, while I am humbled at
the gesture, I can't help but think that these accolades are
misplaced, as it is not just one person that runs the Bench
Bar Conference. It's just far too big of a task. When Dan
Keane told me that his first three choices for Bench Bar
Chair said no, and that he was down to me, I was happy to
say yes. My first order of business was to establish a
Committee of BCBA Members whose experience at Bench
Bar ran the gamut. I wanted attorneys who had been going
for 20+ years. I wanted those who had gone to a few. I
wanted to reach out to members who hadn't gone in a few
years, and those who had never been to one.

Next year we (hopefully) make our way to Crystal Springs.
Melanie Wender, who was instrumental in our initial plans
for Skytop, will be running the show. I can't wait to see
what she has in store for us. No doubt it will be the best
Bench Bar since Hershey.
Respectfully,
Jeremy D. Puglia
