A special message from the CCBA President

A special message from the President of the Clark County Bar Association (CCBA)…

Mariteresa Rivera-Rogers

Dear CCBA members,

As we navigate the uncharted waters of this COVID-19 pandemic, I want to make sure our members and staff remain protected and safe. CCBA wants to do its part in following CDC experts’ directives at this time. While the federal and state governments declared a state of emergency, local business, schools, state offices and others are closing, we too are taking this matter very seriously.

In order to comply with directives of social distancing, CCBA will cancel any member scheduled meetings in our facility for the next 60 days and some of our planned events in other venues to take place in that same time period. Those events will include the CCBAs 30th Annual Meet Your Judges Mixer, the After Taxes Pub Crawl, and Picture Day. Also cancelled will be the our participation in other organizations’ events originally scheduled for April and May 2020, including the UNLV Moot Court Competition, the Nevada Commission on Women’s “A Salute to Women’s Suffrage” parade, and other planned Law Day activities of the Community Service Committee.

Also, we ask for you not to visit our offices during this time, as the bar’s staff may not be keeping regular hours and we would not want to expose them to public contact. Any questions or contact can be done by email or a phone call.

It is my hope that these drastic measures will help to “bring down the curve,” and we all do our part to diminish the impact of this virus in our community.

We appreciate your understanding during these trying times. We will periodically reassess our directives and keep you posted of other changes, if necessary.

Mariteresa Rivera-Rogers

2020 President, Clark County Bar Association
