|MBA President Richard C. Van Nostrand presents the MBA Community Service Award to David E. Sullivan, Hampshire County Register of Probate on March 17 at Union Station, Northampton.
MBA President-Elect Kathleen O'Donnell has decided the MBA once again will hold a Bar Leadership Institute for the association's affiliated bars.
The event is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 29 at the Warren Conference Center in Ashland and will provide bar leaders with networking opportunities as well as useful ideas and information for leading their associations.
