I hope the new year is treating you well. Here at the IABA we've been busy preparing for our first General Meeting, taking place next Wednesday, the 21st of February. This year we have decided to open up the meeting to both members and non members alike and combine it with a happy hour. We're eager to present our accomplishments from 2017 and goals for the year ahead. We're also looking forward to hearing any feedback that our members have. As a reminder, the IABA's board of directors is elected during this meeting. We are actively seeking new board members who want to help continue to build out the association. We have some positions we need to fill, so if you're thinking about joining, there is no better time.
Last month we were fortunate enough to cohost, with the INBA, Irish Minister Pat Breen for a luncheon at Original Joe's. Minister Breen shared his thoughts on the upcoming European General Data Privacy Regulation, Brexit, and the state of the Irish economy. It was a fun and informative event. The event was sponsored by the IABA's newest sponsor William Fry.
Lastly, and in no way the least, the IABA would like to wish a special Valentine's day to all our members. Thank you for helping us keep the great tradition of the Irish American Bar Association going!
See you all next Wednesday.
