Ryan C. Young
It is a privilege to serve as the new president of the HCBA. This is such an amazing group of lawyers and judges. I felt welcome in the HCBA from the very first event I attended. All our Board certainly hopes you feel the same way. Having been involved in other bar associations in the past, I appreciate the camaraderie and professionalism of the HCBA. It is easy to get lost in the crowd of other bar associations.
In the coming year, we would certainly welcome input on how we can provide more value to our members. Is there an event you have seen at another bar association? Do you value CLE over social events? Is there something we are missing entirely? Your input is important to us.
During the past year, we have also made a push to post our events on Facebook. If you have not already done so, I would suggest that you follow us at www.facebook.com/henricobarva/ . As an example of additional events, we tried informal happy hour meet-ups for the first time. Those were largely advertised through email and the Facebook page. Keep an eye out for those emails from us!
I want to thank all of you for the trust you have placed in me. I also want to thank our volunteer Board of Directors. They truly put in a great deal of work to make this organization so exceptional.
All the best,
Ryan C. Young, President
Henrico County Bar Association
