Birmingham Bar Association Bulletin

MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR As you read this message, we are a couple of months into our new Bar year and exciting things are on the horizon! Our remodeled CLE rooms will be open and ready for use soon, and I think our membership will be proud and impressed. The new space will be functional and comfortable, and will provide outstanding training capability and opportunity. The ABA’s Division for Bar Services recently sent a consultant to the BBA to review our organizational and operational structure. The ultimate goal is to ensure that the Bar and its related entities (the Bar Foundation and the Volunteer Lawyers Program) operate with optimal efficiency and coordination. The Bar’s Task Force on Organizational Structure will review observations and recommendations from the Division for Bar Services, and will make suggestions to the leadership of the respective entities as appropriate. We expect the ABA’s report during Summer of 2017. For now, Spring is right around the corner! We hope to enjoy and use our upgraded courtyard as much as possible, and please stay tuned for more on CLE programs and other opportunities to meet and visit with colleagues. John W.
