Mentee Application Mentor/Mentee Guidelines
New Practitioner Section
Thank you to everyone who attended our annual Fall Friendraiser at Trapezaria, 11 North Washington Street, Rockville, MD 20850. A fun time was had by all and a lot of toys and gift cards were donated in support of the Montgomery County Family Justice Center! Also, we would like to thank Spotluck for providing free appetizers for our event. Spotluck works with 30 of the BEST LOCAL RESTAURANTS in Montgomery County to offer a fun spin on dining and discounts. It’s a free app by a local company and was created by former Montgomery County attorney and bar member, Bradford Sayler! If you were unable to make our Friendraiser, but would still like to make a donation to the Family Justice Center, donations can be delivered to Kathryn Deckert, 23 West Middle Lane, Rockville, MD 20850, any time before December 19, 2014.
We will be taking a break from meetings in December due to the busy holiday season, but please be sure to stay tuned for the upcoming events and programs in 2015. We wish you and your families a very happy holiday season and look forward to catching up in the new year!.
It is hard to believe that fall is behind us. By our next Chamber Chat we will be recovering from the holiday bustle and ringing in 2015 with an application for a membership to our local gym! With that being said, there will not be a December Chamber Chat. Please look for details regarding the January Chamber Chat in the next newsletter.
Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen,
and a push in the right direction.

If you have not already, please consider participating in the Montgomery County Bar Association Mentor-Mentee Program. By participating in the Program, experienced attorney-mentors are paired with new-practitioner-mentees. The mentors share their experiences and wisdom with their mentees. Both mentors and mentees build relationships with each other, involve themselves in the Montgomery County Bar Association, and network with other mentors and mentees. With their involvement, each can learn from one another.
If you have practiced law for more than seven years, we encourage you to volunteer as a mentor in the Montgomery County Bar Association Mentor-Mentee Program. If you have been practicing law for less than seven years and would like guidance from a mentor, we encourage you to apply to get a mentor. Applications to be a mentor or mentee are available at http://www.barmont.org/?164, and can be submitted at any time to Rosalyn Tang firstname.lastname@example.org or Eby Kalantar email@example.com.
