Greetings from the Charles Houston Bar Association!
It is my honor and great privilege to serve as President of the Charles Houston Bar Association (CHBA) this year. We are celebrating our 62nd year since the organization was founded in 1955. I look forward to working with you and the leadership of CHBA to have a great year. Our emphasis this year will be on building our membership base, providing opportunities for professional growth and interaction, providing community resource programs and our annual Dinner and Scholarship Gala. Our Gala allows the Association to assist law students with financial resources to complete law school.
If you are not a member of CHBA, we are reaching out to you to join. Dues are very reasonable at $75.00 per year, and if you take advantage of the CLE programs and participate in the other activities, you will be rewarded far in the excess of the dues paid. To our returning members, you are the backbone of the Association and we look forward to you continuing your membership. The Association is only as strong as its membership and I ask you to join with your officers and push to increase membership this year.
We are also reaching out to attorneys beyond the Bay Area and we welcome your participation.
Please join with the Association to make 2017 a great year!
Very truly yours,
Andrew W. Houston
CHBA President 2017
