Chair's Message

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

I am reaching out to each of you in this most uncertain of times to remind you that your Section and your Bar are here to work through these challenges alongside you. We have all been impacted, professionally and personally, by COVID-19 and the amazing efforts being taken to slow its spread, to "flatten the curve", to stave off this unseen menace as long as possible.
