President's Message

I am honored and privileged to serve as the 59th president of the Brooklyn Women's Bar Association. We are a diverse group of over 500 attorneys, judges and court personnel who continue to depend on our organization to educate, promote and support each other.

Brooklyn is one of the most diverse counties in the state and we plan on continuing to offer events and programs that will be of interest to and support the diversity of our members.

We have a number of events either scheduled or planned in the upcoming months. These events include our Membership Party to be held in September; our team is scheduled to participate in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on October 20, 2019 and we are looking forward to our annual BWBA Holiday Party in December and our Judiciary Night in January.

Besides these events, there are other exciting programs in the planning phase including Continuing Legal Education courses as well as our very popular Lunch with a Judge and the Appellate Division. Please check our calendar regularly for updated information on our events and programs.

When you join BWBA, you become part of both a local and statewide network of attorneys and judges that provide support for your professional life and career through various member benefits, mentorship and robust programming. There are many opportunities to learn, network and get involved as a member.

If you have not already, we invite you to join BWBA or renew your membership today. We hope to see you at our events this upcoming year.
