Message from the President, March 2021
We’ve (almost) made it to spring! Spring often brings a sense of hope and the sunshine. I hope that even though the pandemic continues, we can begin to see a light at the end of this very long tunnel.
I want to thank all of you who have participated in GBA events in the month of February. We have been very busy! In response to your survey results requesting more social and CLE opportunities, we hosted a Diversity Training Program led by the Equity Paradigm, we competed against one another through a virtual trivia event (my team will never forget that Aldi owns Trader Joe’s), and we even managed to put on the Annual CLE in the midst of an ice storm. I want to give a special thank you to Kim Gatling, Judge Cubbage, and Judge Shields for leading a thought provoking Judges Panel on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We also want to thank Judge Vincent for being the featured speaker at the February membership meeting. She discussed courthouse operations during COVID and answered questions from the membership. If you have additional questions or concerns about courthouse operations during COVID, please communicate those to me and I will communicate them to the appropriate person. In addition, we have created a COVID section of the GBA’s website, which is now live. Please check it out for updates related to COVID.
Looking ahead, we have another opportunity coming up to connect socially:
Nailed It Greensboro Event, March 3 at 5:30 PM. Do you want to get in touch with your crafty side? Join us as we partner with Nailed It Greensboro to create signs for your home or office. The event will be virtual, and participants will be required to pay for and pick up their take home DIY project ahead of the event. Registration is limited to 30 people. You can Register Here.
The GBA Board is continuing to work on more social and CLE opportunities, so stay tuned. In the month of March, we look forward to welcoming members of the Greensboro Police Department to speak at our membership meeting.
Stay safe everyone, and we hope to connect with you virtually at one of our upcoming events.
