We hope you had a great summer and are looking forward to the fall and the start of the 2020-2021 Bar Year as much as we are.  Our first meeting of the year is our Welcome Back Zoom Happy Hour which will be held on September 15th at 5:00 p.m. via ZOOM (Details immediately following).  Connect with us and catch up with your peers and learn about the exciting plans we have for the upcoming year!  As we’re planning the upcoming year, we would welcome any suggestions about what you would like to see from the New Practitioner Section.  We are looking forward to the time when we can see each other in person, but until then, let’s stay connected via ZOOM!

We are excited to be teaming up with Paul Havenstein, the Mentor-Mentee Program Chair, and Jared Sands, the Chamber Chats Chair, as well as with our fellow chairs and co-chairs throughout the Association, to bring you the best programs possible.  Be on the lookout in future issues of the Newsletter, your email inboxes, and the BAMC’s social media channels for updates to our calendar.

In the meantime, we would love to hear from you!  Whether you are new to the Association and are looking to make a few contacts or nearing the end of your time in the New Practitioner Section, we want to make sure you are getting what you want out of the BAMC.  We both have come through the ranks of the Bar Association and can offer some friendly advice as you navigate your way through all our committees and sections and what they have to offer.  So be sure to email or call one or both of us with suggestions, comments, criticisms, or just to chat.  Now is a great time to do so as we are putting together the pieces of what will be an interesting year.  You can reach either of us at:




Please feel free to contact me at with any suggestions, questions, or comments regarding the Chamber Chats series. Your feedback is incredibly helpful to make sure the Chats are most beneficial to you and your practice.


The New Practitioners' Section is excited to be continuing its Mentor-Mentee program. It is an excellent way for young lawyers to learn more about the practice of law in the area in which they are interested, and for experienced lawyers to impart some of their well-learned wisdom. If you would like to participate in the program either as a mentee or a mentor (at least 7 years in practice) please email me at and include your name, employment status, number of years in practice, and the type of law you practice or are interested in practicing.

Applications to become a mentor or a mentee are available at  They can be submitted to Paul J. Havenstein .
