On Tuesday, January 24, 2012, the Asian American Bar Association of New York held its Annual Meeting at the offices of First American Title at 633 Third Avenue in midtown Manhattan. Outgoing President Linda Lin welcomed the attendees and introduced the Committee Chairs as they each gave reports on their respective committee’s activities for 2011 and plans for 2012. While the committee reports were being presented, the ballots cast for electing the 2012 Board members and officers were counted.
After the committee reports were presented, the recipient of the first-ever Outstanding Committee of the Year Award was announced. Although many committees were deserving of the recognition, the honor ultimately went to the Intellectual Property Committee for the wide array and high quality of their programs and events.
Next, Alex Lee, NAPABA’s VP of Communications, gave an update on the upcoming Super-Regional taking place at the end of May in Atlantic City and encouraged everyone to take part.
President Lin then announced the results of the elections:
- President-elect – Mike Huang
- Treasurer – Clara Ohr
- Membership Secretary – Judy Kim
- Recording Secretary – Jane Chuang
- Robert Leung
- Karen Lim
- William Ng
- Dev Sen
- Vinoo Varghese
- James Yu
Congratulations to the incoming Officers and Directors of AABANY.
Incoming President Jean Lee, whose term officially starts on Feb. 1, gave the closing remarks, and thanked Linda for her leadership and the committee chairs for all their hard work. Jean looks forward to working with the the Board and committee chairs in the year ahead.
