On behalf of the Board and membership, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Delaware County Bar Association. As a new member, you will enjoy many great benefits, including low cost/no cost CLE programs, great social events, and discounts through the Association's Affinity Program. However, one of the most important benefits is the ability to participate in the Mentoring-Networking Program. Whether you are a new attorney, or just new to the practice of law in Delaware County, learning the "ins and outs" of local court procedures can be daunting. Critical components of a successful practice are knowing the court system and networking with your colleagues.
To help you adapt to practice in Delaware County, the Bar Association has created a "Mentoring-Networking Program. All new members are invited to join at no cost. Some of the benefits of the Mentoring-Networking Program include:
- all participants will be assigned a personal mentor, who is a seasoned practitioner
- mentors will be available to provide you with support and help as you begin your practice
- mentors will accompany you to Bar Association events to introduce you to judges and your colleagues
- mentors can help you to "learn the ropes" of practice in Delaware County
Please consider taking advantage of this great opportunity. We hope that having access to a mentor will be a great foundation on which you can build a successful practice.
If you have any questions about the Mentoring-Mentoring Program, please contact either of the Co-Chairs: John Neumann Hickey (610) 891-8883 or Carrie Woody (610) 566-8770. Also, you can become a part of the Mentoring-Networking Program by completing the form below.
