Letter from the DeKalb Bar President
September has always symbolized new beginnings for me. Growing up in New England, we started school in September. There is nothing like donning new school clothes, the smell of freshly sharpened pencils, and to follow through with your intent to get all As throughout the school year! My son’s middle school science teacher has the following quote on his web page: “We all start with a 100 percent, or with a 0 percent; which is it?” My intention is to start with a 100 percent pledge to maintain the legacy of commitment that the past presidents of the DeKalb Bar Association have exemplified over the past 45 years.
I am pleased to live in a country where we can embrace change while holding on to tradition. The DBA Board met this summer to assess what the DBA has to offer its members in terms of education, specific practice services, social activities and community involvement.
