Taking the Time to Become a Bar Leader

CCBA President Nedda Ghandi calls for nominations of CCBA members to serve on the 2023 CCBA Executive Board. See her message in the bar journal COMMUNIQUÉ, (Sept. 2022).

When I joined the Clark County Bar Association in 2009, I was looking for way to network in the Nevada legal community and I joined the CCBA very early in my legal career. The CCBA provides numerous events and functions that cater to fostering connections with other attorneys, judges, legal assistants, law students, and merchants. After a short while, I began to appreciate CCBA for its numerous outreach and service opportunities to both the legal community and the community at large. There are so many different ways to contribute to this organization in a meaningful way.

Bar associations are only as good as their staff and the effort and time that their members put into the bar association. When the lawyers who comprise a local bar treat it with the same diligence and attention they give to their work, then it is likely to be that much more useful to its members. I encourage you to give your time to serving on the CCBA’s committees and its Board. If you are interested in serving on the Executive Board, nominations are being accepted through November 1, 2022. Elections for serving on the 2023 CCBA Executive Board will be held at the CCBA Annual Meeting & 40 Year Club Luncheon in December. More information is below.
