Greetings from the Charles Houston Bar Association!
I’d like to thank each of you for your continued support of the Charles Houston Bar Association (“CHBA”). I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to serve as the 2018 President of CHBA, and I look forward to working with our dynamic membership to further our organization’s mission, create an even greater impact on our local communities, and continue to pave the way for young students and attorneys to enter and advance in the legal profession.
This year the Board of CHBA will focus on deepening the impact of our existing programs in an effort to be even more effective in our collective work. We look forward to continuing our free legal clinics in Oakland. And since it is an election year, we will add a voter registration and voter education component to our community outreach so that the voices of our community can be heard and reflected in our government. We will continue to fundraise to grow and expand our scholarship and fellowship programs to create even more opportunities for our young students to enter and be successful in the profession. Finally, we will continue to recognize and uplift the achievements of our members and support their advancement in the legal profession.
If you are not a member of CHBA, please consider joining and becoming a dues paying member. If you are a member of CHBA, please consider becoming a Life Member. Membership dues help fund our programs, and will provide CHBA the resources needed to implement our organization’s mission. I am excited to partner with each of you, and I know that together we will make 2018 another banner year for CHBA.
All the best,
Eric S. Casher
CHBA President 2018
