Spring Greetings!

Spring greetings, Clark County Bar Association members and friends. I trust you are all enjoying the wonderful weather we are having in Clark County this Spring. Hopefully you enjoyed last month’s magazine, which brought us an array of articles on new beginnings and fresh starts. The CCBA has its own fresh start to announce, but more on that in a moment.

40 Year Club

First, I would like to thank all of you who attended the 40 year club luncheon at Morton’s in March. I would like to thank our premier sponsors, Bank of Nevada and Century Link, and our patron sponsors, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP and Insurance for Lawyers. As always, our master of ceremonies, Sal Gugino, Esq., delivered fun, puns, and his signature “pitch” perfect mix of appropriate and, well, downright uncomfortable humor that makes this an event not to miss. His knowledge of the history of the bar, its members, and our legal community ensures he will (nearly) always have truth as an absolute defense. Thanks again, Sal, and many more returns. For event highlights, see the April issue of the bar journal Communiqué.  A program was printed for the March 2015 event. See PDF: 40-Year-Club-Event-Program-2015-web

Meet Your Judges Mixer

Mob-Museum-Building-FullFront-small-220x165This year marks the 25th Annual Meet Your Judge’s Mixer, and we are set for June 4 at The Mob Museum. Come out and enjoy a night with friends and colleagues and make some new friends in the legal community as well. This event is always well attended, and the sponsorship opportunities the CCBA has available this year will be exceptional. Whether you are interested in advertising your firm, or you have a client who wishes to explore sponsorship opportunities, the benefits to being a part of such a well advertised, well organized, and well attended event will be evident from the start. Don’t miss out, sponsorships are already rolling in. For sponsorship opportunities, contact Donna at Donnaw@clarkcountybar.org or (702) 387-6011.

Thank you all for taking the time to check in with the CCBA. Remember, if you see me in court or out in the community, please introduce yourself and ask me about what we have planned for the year!
