Message from the President, January 2022
As I’ve written a number of times, one of my goals for the year was to get us back to live meetings in 2022. I thought the COVID thing would be over by June (of 2020 that is) but here we are still dealing with it (and I have quit making predictions). Anyway, after consultation with the GBA board, we’ve decided our next membership meeting (January 20) will be virtual.
Meanwhile, Rosetta Davis pulled off another virtual holiday party. I missed last year’s but this one was really fun, with a terrific musical guest. Given the limitations imposed on us, it worked great. Thanks again to Rosetta for the good work on this.
As noted, out next meeting is January 20 and our guest speaker will be NC Attorney General Josh Stein. It will be a good one and a little more “legal” than our last few meetings which have focused more on business and politics (everyone’s favorite topics). It’s virtual but we’ll make the best of it and I hope to see you there.
Congratulations to Manisha Patel on her election as Bar Councilor. She starts her (not easy) duties next month. I have to admit I didn’t know much about what the Bar Councilors do before doing a little research for this election – it’s really kind of a big deal. Anyway, Manisha’s column appears in this newsletter so it’s worth a read.
On a personal note, best wishes to our membership, staff and friends for a great 2022. We’ll get past this COVID thing sooner or later but either way, GBA will be there to serve our membership.
GBA President, 2021-2022
