Happy Holidays OCWLA Members!

It is hard to believe that 2023 is coming to an end! I have been so honored to serve as the OCWLA President this year. Thank you for trusting in me to serve and lead this great organization. It has truly been an honor! 

We had a busy and fun-filled 2023. This year we held our first Business Referral and Speed Networking event, which we plan to make an annual event. We held numerous MCLEs on a variety of topics from Navigating AI in the Practice of Law to our Annual Equal Pay Day MCLE. We partnered with a number of Affiliate Bar Organizations and held free coffee meetups to give our members an opportunity to connect and network. Our book club continued to meet monthly and has been going strong for eight years now. 

Also, in partnership with the Unity Bar, we recommended four candidates to the bench who have been appointed. We also held our signature events, including our Annual Wine Tasting, our Membership Mixer, Past Presidents’ Tea, Women Judges Reception, where we had over 35 judges in attendance, and held our Annual Gala and Awards Dinner at the beautiful VEA Hotel. 

Thank you to our members, the OCWLA Board, and our many Sponsors who helped make 2023 a great year! Last week we held our Annual Holiday Party and Installation Dinner where the 2024 Board of Directors, the 2024 Executive Officers, and the 2024 Foundation Board were sworn in. I want to personally welcome Caroline Djang as the 2024 President of the OCWLA. 2024 will be a great year under her leadership. I look forward to serving as the 2024 President of the OCWLA Foundation and on the Executive Committee as the Immediate Past President. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year, and I hope to see you all soon at an event in the new year.
