A Message From The President
I am honored and excited to have the privilege of serving as President of one of the finest bar associations of Queens County -
the Queens County Women's Bar Association!
To begin with, I would like to thank all the Founders and Past Presidents of this great organization, who had the vision and foresign to create and maintain this necessary association for female attorneys. If not for the tireless efforts of the Board of Directors, Past Presidents and active Members, I would not be President.
The Queens County Women's Bar Association ("QCWBA") was formed in 1931 by a group of 14 females who needed an organization of their "own" to promote, discuss and educate each other on legal topics with an emphasis between women and the law.
QCWBA is very dear to my heart because it is one of the first associations that I joined after being admitted to the New York State Bar. QCWBA helped me to evolve and mature professionally. It gave me the self-confidence to know that I can do anything I set my mind to and that it was possible to achieve and still maintain my self-esteem as a woman.
To that end, I commit that during my term I will endeavor to refresh, increase and retain our membership. Therefore, new programs will be developed to meet the needs of new members with a focus on social media and family inclusion to allow for the incorporation of both work and family responsibilities in professional and social settings.
Under my Term, QCWBA will continue to have important programs including our annual events such as New Members Reception (September), Breast Cancer Walk (October), Judiciary Night (November), Read Across America (March), on-going Chamber Chats and various other CLE and social events.
I hope you are as excited as I am about the upcoming year and that you will get involved by attending our events and assist me in increasing retaining our membership. The strength of OUR organization is in numbers and it is OUR duty as Women Attorneys to promote, encourage and maintain QCWBA membership in large numbers.
WE are intelligent, diverse and powerful women who owe it to the QCWBA Founders and Past Presidents to continue to succeed and be a dominant voice in Queens County.
I look forward to working the Board of Directors, Past Presidents and Members to make this a very productive and rewarding year. Hope to hear from you all!
