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

Believe it or not, at the MCB, we’re already starting to think about leadership for next year –July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020. We know that Chris Lam of Bradley LLP will be our next president, but many other roles must be filled too. The Board consists of 26 positions. Each year, six positions in the new class must be filled, along with one Young Lawyers Division Chair, the President-Elect, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. An ABA Delegate is selected every other year. The hope is that candidates will have had experience with committees, sections or task forces as leaders or active members, but any member in good standing is encouraged to submit his or her name as an interested candidate.

Lots of people have been working diligently to help me execute on my focus areas during my service as MCB President – membership value, inclusion, and engagement. Chief among them are the volunteers serving on the Membership Value and CLE Task Forces and the Membership Inclusion & Engagement Subcommittee. Given we’re about at the halfway mark of my tenure, I think an update makes sense. Here’s what the leaders of those groups want you to know about the status of their work.

2018 is quickly coming to a close. As with every year, 2018 was filled with highs and lows, both personally and professionally. I like to take a look back periodically to make sure I’m learning what I can from the past and to make sure I am acknowledging all that I have to be grateful for.  Here are a few highlights that come to mind:

The sound of bulldozers fills the air, and the MCB Bar & Foundation Center will soon have neighbors. After four years at the Greenway Business Park, new construction is underway. The site next door to the MCB will be home to a 17,000 square foot health club/office building. The first floor will be a Crossfit Health Facility and the second floor an office complex rumored to house a juice bar. A recent update from RJS Properties provides more exciting news. They tell us that the immediate area has been named #1 in the “Top 10 Charlotte Zip Codes to Invest In.” What a difference four years makes. We were lucky to have built our building when we did!
