2013-14 Lawyers As Volunteers Advisory (LAVA) Panel Report

Jeff Schwartz, Chair & Katie Holliday, Vice-Chair

 

The LAVA Panel spent a good deal of time working with its committees who support volunteer activities within the MCB to implement a number of strategic initiatives aimed at strengthening the MCB volunteer efforts.  LAVA members provided critical feedback regarding the best way to structure volunteer initiatives. 

 

In addition, LAVA members worked with various legal services organizations, specifically Legal Service of the Southern Piedmont (LSSP) and Legal Assistance of North Carolina (LANC), to strengthen the relationship between the MCB and these important organizations.  Members of LAVA worked with various Mecklenburg Bar Foundation projects to strengthen the tie between the volunteer efforts of the Bar and the Foundation.
