A MESSAGE FROM LANCE DAVIDSON
PRESIDENT OF THE SCOTTSDALE BAR ASSOCIATION
August 11, 2017
Having been President since April 2017, I am amazed at how much our SBA has accomplished in just a few months. In May, the SBA annual golf tournament occurred at the beautiful TPC Champions Golf Course. Every participant won at least one prize, rendering the effective cost of playing on this beautiful course at approximately $75, a steal including lunch. Non-golfers were again included, enjoying a champagne & putting contest. And last week, the annual Summer Social had many members and guests, including Justices and judges, brave the stormy weather for great food and cheer, and to witness the SBA’s Award of Excellence to Judge Olcavage.
Each month other than August, the SBA sponsors a luncheon at the Gainey Ranch Golf Clubhouse at which the attendees may obtain an hour’s CLE credit with topical, informative programs. All for $30. In addition to these events which offer an opportunity to network with colleagues, the SBA sponsors other events, including providing monthly pro bono legal services at Paiute Neighborhood Center in South Scottsdale. For those of you who have not yet donated an hour of your time there, I can assure you that you will experience renewed motivation in practicing law from the heart-rendering stories brought by the residents.
The Board of Directors of the SBA has managed the affairs of the SBA with prudence and with ever-improving financial stability. The Board also is always examining new ways to reach out into the community to help both the community and your law practices. So please participate even more and email any comments to the Board or me. You can find a list of Board members and their contact information by logging in to the website at www.scottsdalebar.org, clicking on the "Committees" tab on the menu, and clicking on "view members" arrow next to the Board of Directors tab.
Additionally, the Scottsdale Bar Association has many committee opportunities for members to join. These committees help to create some of our most valuable and rewarding activity as an association. You can see a list of committees, along with the members of the Board who are on each committee, by logging in to the website and clicking on the “Committees” tab.
