November is often a time when we slow down and consider how grateful we are for the people and things in our life. Although I try to maintain an attitude of gratitude all year long and have a practice of listing one thing I am thankful for in my planner daily, I am especially grateful this year. I am thankful that I am allowed the privilege of practicing law and that I am able to serve you as President of the Greensboro Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section. I am so thankful to be a part of this community of lawyers. I hope you, too, will take time to reflect on the things that make you grateful this season.
Here are some of the other things we are grateful for this month:
A Successful Swearing-in Ceremony
This year’s Swearing-In Ceremony took place on Friday, October 12, 2018 at 3:00p.m. in Courtroom 3 of the United States District Court in downtown Greensboro. We deeply appreciate all the support from those who attended the event and we would like to especially thank Judge Eagles, Judge Craig, Judge Shields, Judge Vincent, Clerk Brubaker, Ms. Roberta Curry, and all of the other individuals who participated and helped us facilitate such a special event. We look forward to continuing to welcome the newly sworn-in attorneys to the GBA.
A Joint Networking Event
YLS is excited to partner with the GBA Membership Committee to support the GBA’s Mix and Mingle, which will take place on November 8, 2018, at Joymongers. YLS members, we want to see you! As an expression of our gratitude for your attendance, we will provide a drink ticket (or two). Just find a YLS Board member when you arrive. We are excited to network with the GBA and hope you can make it! Please bring an eligible member and we will share with them, too.
The Opportunity to Serve You
The YLS Board is excited about this year! One of our main goals this year is to serve our membership by providing service opportunities and activities that interest you. We are working hard to think of new events and activities that will provide you with additional ways to interact with your peers. We would like to encourage you consider what service opportunities and activities you want. We welcome your thoughts and feedback. Please email us with your ideas and suggestions at [email protected].
