The DCBA held its Annual Meeting and Welcoming Ceremony on November 20, 2013. At that meeting, the membership passed a revision to our Mission Statement. The new Mission Statement was drafted to embody the principles of the former Mission Statement in a more succinct manner. Below is the revised statement:
The Delaware County Bar Association exists to serve its members and the community at large by fostering respect for the law, by advancing the competent, collegial, and ethical practice of the legal profession, and by creating opportunities for attorneys, judges, and the public to work collaboratively for justice.
I am excited that the DCBA remains a dynamic bar association, and this statement exemplifies the great work which our members are doing.
On Thursday, December 12, 2013, the Board of Directors is hosting a Holiday Party for all of our members. This reception is our way of saying "thank you" for all of your support during the year. The event will be between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in the Bar Building. If you are interested in attending, please contact Bill Baldwin.
On behalf of the Board, I want to wish all of our members a very happy Thanksgiving!
