Section leadership ramps up for 2009-10 year

Issue Sept/Oct 2009

New section chairs gathered at the MBA's Boston offices on Aug. 20 for an orientation program. MBA President Valerie A. Yarashus led the half-day program, which featured helpful pointers from some of her fellow officers, a past section chair and several MBA staff members.

Of the 31 new appointees, more than half were in attendance for a primer on matters such as bar governance and legislation, section council management and the MBA's public and community services. Look for more information on this year's section leadership in future issues of Lawyers Journal.
