PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE to involve you in leadership, even if you have never been involved before. there is a common misconception that in order to be involved as a leader, you have to be an old grey-haired person with lots of spare time and nothing else to do. not true. our leaders include lawyers young and old, women and men, from big firms and small, deal makers and litigators, partners and associates, judges and mediators, conservatives and liberals, republicans and Democrats, and some who defy easy description. what we have in common is the law, an ethic of service, and a desire to make lives of meaning together. i invite you to come to our annual Meeting on May 20, 2014 at the piedmont Driving club to meet our leaders for the coming year: Jacqueline h. saylor, president; harold e. franklin, Vice-president/president elect; James D. blitch iV, secretary; and Margaret H. (Maggie) Vath, Treasurer. These officers will take their oaths along with the newly elected members of the board of Directors: lisa K. liang, christopher p. lightner, Melissa phillips reading, and others who will be appointed by the president. if you have an idea about something you want the bar to do, or if you want to be of service, show up and let one of these folks know. i look forward to seeing you there. 2014 ANNUAL MEETING & AWARDS LUNCHEON Tuesday, May 20, 2014 11:30 a.m. Piedmont Driving Club Please join us as we install new leadership and celebrate our Association’s remarkable members and accomplishments.
