MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Welcome to the end of 2018, with the holiday season quickly approaching. I hope you will take time at the end of this year to think about all that you have accomplished and be proud of yourself! But before checking out for a well-deserved rest, please be sure to catch 2 not-tomiss Birmingham Bar events: Revamped Annual Meeting: Emphasis on “revamped.” This year, the meeting will only last 1 hour (yes, it’s true!). And the meeting will be held at the Birmingham Bar Center. Other changes are in the works, and I promise you will want to attend this meeting for ALL of our members. Jennifer and Phillip McCallum Excellent Year-End Party: Emphasis on “excellent.” We will gather again this year at the Greek Orthodox Church and feast on all of the familiar favorites. And don’t forget the famous eggnog, as well as many other festive spirits. Please enjoy the many member-oriented features in this issue of the Bulletin. Many thanks to each of you for your leadership, camaraderie and active participation, which make our Bar great! Jennifer M. Buettner Executive Director 2018 BOARD OF EDITORS William G.
