Get Involved, Stay Connected: New York City Bar Association Committee Applications Still Being Accepted

It’s not too late to become a Committee member at the New York City Bar Association, which means that it’s not too late to become involved in over 150 areas of law within a membership body of over 24,000 students and legal professionals! NYCBA is still accepting applications for Committee member positions, and though some deadlines have passed, others are ready and willing for someone to take strong hold of the leadership opportunities.

NYCBA has reached out and noted that AABANY members are strongly encouraged to apply. The sooner, the better. Let’s get the ball rolling.

If you are interested contact main@aabany.org. Thank you!

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:

Officers:

  • President-elect – Mike Huang
  • Treasurer – Clara Ohr
  • Membership Secretary – Judy Kim
  • Recording Secretary – Jane Chuang

Directors

  • 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.
