In April, Anne and I took our girls to Washington, DC for spring break.  We saw many of the usual monuments, memorials and museums.  We were also fortunate to have a private tour of the National Archives and as the four of us stood alone in the Rotunda with only our historian guide and our nation’s charter documents, I was struck by the courage and the foresight that these formative leaders had to shape our country.  Then, three days later, we all sat in the front row of the Supreme Court and thought of the cases that have been argued there that define our rights and freedoms, often harkening back to the principles laid out in the four pages of the Constitution.  I thought of the important and critical role that an independent judiciary has in our democracy.

Thank you for the privilege of serving as this year’s MCB president. As last year’s president told me, it’s a big job. It’s big because we’re 5,000+ members strong, there are many moving parts and it’s a volunteer gig and you need to continue to do your day job as well. That said, I’ve had a great time meeting and getting to know many more of you and working to advance the ideas and issues you said are important.

You, my fellow bar members, have definite opinions on MCB CLE and we’ve heard you.

I recently attended the MCB’s Bar Leadership Dinner & Extraordinary Service Awards which kicks off the start of the Bar Leadership Institute (BLI).

As you know from a prior communication to the MCB membership, Nancy Roberson is no longer with the Mecklenburg County Bar.
