are incredibly generous with their time talent and treasure and enable the good work of the Foundation to continue. We will also focus on establishing a robust Committee structure where each Board member is engaged and focused on special areas of service such as events and fundraising, corporate governance and long term strategic planning for the Foundation. What is one of your favorite Atlanta Bar Foundation events? I can’t name just one! The End of Summer Band Party is always a big hit. This year it was held on September 12 at Terminal West. If pushed, I would probably say my favorite event is the Grants Celebration Luncheon where the Foundation, together with our partner the Atlanta Bar Lawyer Referral and Information Service, celebrates the award of grants to so many worthy organizations. Adv ice for getting more involved with the Atlanta Bar? Just sign up! The Atlanta Bar Association offers a wealth of diverse opportunities for so many, but especially young lawyers.
