Bucks Writs - Fall 2020 - 4

President's Message
My Fellow Members
of the Bar:

From my interactions with bar
associations around the state, it
is clear that Bucks County has
done a tremendous job ensuring
that people have access to justice
during these difficult times, and
that is due to the leadership of our
Bench and input and cooperation
of the Bucks County Bar. While the
work never ends, I am confident
that the Association will continue
to play a large role in that process
going forward.

It has been an eventful
year for the Association ...
Opening of Assizes, WLD/
BCBF St. Patrick's Day in
August, Bench Bar, WLD
Power Summit, Pro Bono
Recognition CLE/Reception.
It has not necessarily been
the year that we planned
for, but it has been a good

nonetheless. We now turn our
attention to the final major
event of the year - the Annual Meeting and Reception
on December 10th.

County has done a tremendous job ensuring that people
have access to justice during these difficult times, and
that is due to the leadership of our Bench and input and
cooperation of the Bucks County Bar. While the work never
ends, I am confident that the Association will continue to
play a large role in that process going forward.

This year's Annual Meeting and Reception will be virtual and
a conglomeration of prior years' events. We have important
Association business to conduct, annual awards to present
and an interesting year to reflect on. I hope you will join us
for this unique Association experience.

As this is my last President's Message, it is important that
I thank everyone who helped make this a great year for
the Association. That includes members, staff, business
partners and sponsors. During my opening remarks at
last year's Annual Dinner, I said that my hope for my year
as President is that we leave the Association to the next
leadership team in a better position than we received it. We
powered through a difficult year and are now able to turn
over the Association to the capable hands of Sean Gresh,
Julie Goldstein and the Executive Committee, the Board of
Directors, and the new Section, Division and Committee
Chairs so that they can take us to the next level. I look
forward to turning my attention to helping them achieve
their goals. #80 out. 

It is worth noting that despite the external pressures on
the Association in 2020, our membership numbers are
up. This year has really highlighted for area attorneys why
the Association is an important component of any legal
practice. While the Member Services Committee and
BCBA staff certainly played large roles in increasing our
membership, some of the credit also goes to our members
who have been active participants in Association events
and who have been spreading the word to non-member
attorneys that membership in the Association provides
invaluable networking and educational opportunities.
Please keep helping us grow the Association.
A recent experience reminded me of why I wanted to take
on this job as President of the Association. I handled a
matter before a Magisterial District Judge in Bucks County
and as I was leaving the Judge stopped me to comment on
how impressed she has been at the level of cooperation she
has received from our members. The Judge went on to say
that this has been a difficult process that has been made
easier by the Bench and Bar coming together to make it
work. On behalf of our membership I was happy to receive
that praise and I echo her sentiments. From my interactions
with bar associations around the state, it is clear that Bucks
