Letter from the President

Get Involved with the CCBA

By Jason P. Stoffel

This fall, the CCBA is offering members several chances to get involved more with the organization. Members will have opportunities to get a FREE CLE seminar, to get a gift certificate for a holiday family photography session ($49 value) courtesy of Portraits to You, to purchase discounted tickets to select performances of the Nevada Ballet Theatre and a Golden Knights game, and to develop bar leadership skills.

Right now, I am excited to announce a few special offers available for a limited time and for CCBA MEMBERS ONLY. . .

CCBA membership special offer

I am grateful for your continued support of the CCBA. And, like last year, the CCBA wants to give you a FREE CLE recorded seminar if you renew your CCBA membership early—BEFORE Friday, November 15, 2019. Please take advantage this special offer:

Renew your membership for 2020 to the CCBA ONLINE at https://www.clarkcountybar.org/ and BEFORE Friday, November 15, 2019, to receive a link to download the complimentary video recording of “New Lawyers: Things They Didn’t Tell You In Law School,” a seminar featuring a presentation by Dennis L. Kennedy of Bailey Kennedy and recorded in 2019 that is worth 2.0 Ethics CLE Credit (NV)!
This is a great deal, even for us not so new lawyers. You are never too old to learn something new. Remember, if you have attended the live seminar or previously rented or purchased this title, then the CLE credit will not be awarded again. In that case, we may be able to offer an alternative title to fulfill the early bird special.

Please look for an e-mail from StephanieAbbott@clarkcountybar.org with more information and get the link to renew your CCBA membership early! She plans to send that e-mail to CCBA members on or about October 31, 2019. [Editor’s note: the email from Steph may be released as early as October 7, 2019.]

Mark your calendars now to attend this live event!

Special offers* for attendees:

  • Sign up/submit orders for live/recorded CLE programs
  • Register for the next Clark County Bar Luncheon

I invite local companies to participate in the CCBA Member Appreciation Day on November 1, 2019. Submit your proposal to Donna at donnaw@clarkcountybar.org.

Bar leadership

Many of CCBA’s activities are planned by bar committees at their monthly meetings. CCBA members have the opportunity to serve on a bar committee. Members who are interested in becoming bar leaders are needed to step up to volunteer to serve on a bar committee or the CCBA Executive Board. See Bar Committees for more information on bar committees and for more information about the election for the 2020 CCBA Executive Board, see https://www.clarkcountybar.org/notice-of-election-for-2020-ccba-executive-board/.

Please get involved with the CCBA today. For more information about bar committees, activities, and services, visit or call the CCBA office at (702) 387-6011 or search the bar’s website at www.clarkcountybar.org.
