The Atlanta Lawyer May 2018 - Page 8

Member Appreciation Month Recap The inaugural Atlanta Bar Member Appreciation Month took place throughout the month of April and celebrated members through a diverse offering of free activities, programs, and ticket giveaways. Members were invited to get their headshot taken or updated for free at the Atlanta Bar offices on Mon- days and Fridays. Professional de- velopment offerings included the CLE Developing Lawyers Program Part 1, social media training classes for beginners and advanced, and an internet security webinar pro- vided by Hilltop Consultants. A wellness class gave members im- portant tips to help them achieve a healthy work/life balance. Trivia contests gave those in the know a chance to win tickets to various social and sporting events. Questions were asked every Mon- day morning and members who answered the question correctly in the shortest amount of time took 8 May 2018 home the prize. The questions focused on Atlanta Bar history and fun facts about the Associa- tion and provoked thought among even the most tenured members. Prizes included a pair of tickets to an Atlanta Braves game (20 win- ners), a pair of tickets to an Atlanta United game (20 winners), Atlanta Bar Foundation End of Summer Band Party tickets (featuring Ru- mours - A Fleetwood Mac Trib- ute) and Annual Beer Tasting and Barbeque Battle tickets benefiting ALAS and AVLF. The Member Appreciation Month activities culminated in a pure- ly social gathering where there were no speeches and no awards. A Reception About Nothing was a night about friends and fun and brought together judges, leaders, and members old and new to the Association. ▪ Trivia Contest winners: Atlanta Braves Tickets Trevor Brice Scott Calhoun James Cole Hunter Garrett Corey Goerdt Ulyana Hamilton Douglas Hance Courtney LeBeau Hillary Li Jason Marcus Kenneth Mitchell Erin Reeves McGinnis Linda Sanders James Shin Savannah Steele Heath Turner Greg Walling Bing Wang Rob Wildstein Sabrina Wilson Atlanta United Tickets Kimberly Ader Allison Berman Brittanie Browning Benjamin Cheesbro
