As we turn the corner into the 2014-15 Massachusetts Bar
Association membership year, we can look proudly upon an impressive
record of accomplishment by Douglas K. Sheff, our immediate past
president. He, like his predecessors, invested his time, resources,
energy, blood, sweat and tears to maintain the MBA's position as
the preeminent statewide bar association in the commonwealth. And I
know that President Sheff would be the first to acknowledge that
little could be accomplished without the dedication and leadership
of our incomparable Chief Legal Counsel and Chief Operating Officer
Martin Healy and our talented staff.
This is an incredible time for the MBA, and I am very excited
about the upcoming year - not only because I have the privilege of
serving you as MBA president, but because this year attorneys in
Massachusetts, and particularly MBA members, will have
opportunities that we've never had before.
