President's Message


I am excited to announce the 2020 SDCBA Board election season is underway! We have a full slate of Board candidates seeking to serve in the coming year. I encourage you to get to know these candidates and to exercise your right to vote for our future leadership. You can read the candidates’ statements and learn all about the voting process here. Polls will be open from October 15 through November 8.
 
Speaking of elections, the nomination period for Section and New Lawyer Division (NLD) leadership is now open. These leadership positions offer a great opportunity to shape the programs and activities the SDCBA provides for its members. Learn more here.  
 
And, if you’re trying to figure out how to tame technology to help make running your practice smoother and more productive, first, you’re in good company, and second, we’ve got just the breakfast for you. Join us for our free “Breakfast with the Tech Guru” tomorrow morning with legal tech expert Adriana Linares, the SDCBA Member Technology Officer.
