and fun, healthy events where lawyers can focus on our own wellbeing. Finally, we will soon launch Bond with the Bar, an opportunity for members to join our leaders in informal social events to get to know them – and the bar – better. Though we spent much time in 2018 creating new programs in response to what we heard from our members, we remain proud of what we do well. Since our last edition of this magazine, Atlanta Bar’s Santa Program brought cheer and ensured happier holidays for a great number of children in Atlanta. And what a joy it was to end 2018 with the Atlanta Bar and Atlanta Bar Foundation awarding over $200,000 in grants to the fantastic legal services organizations in our community. As we start 2019, we hope that you will find a way to go forward with us. Join one of our new initiatives. Volunteer to serve on a committee. Attend an event. Reach out to meet with us over a cup of coffee or a meal. Let us be a part of your plan for 2019 and tell us how we can best serve you – our members- and our profession. Though the new year is a great time for reflec- tion, we love to hear new ideas any time of the year at the Atlanta Bar. If you have thoughts, or would like to become further involved, let us know so we can get ready to go together.
