JANUARY 2018 NEWS

On January 25, 2018, the High Desert Bar Association held its 2018 Installation Luncheon.

Following the swearing-in ceremony, President Heather Lewis introduced each of the new board members and shared with the attendees each member’s professional and personal attributes and accolades, which made clear the immense experience and enthusiasm that will be of great benefit to the High Desert Bar Association.

At the luncheon, great attention was drawn to the benefits of joining the HDBA which are the same as the wonderful benefits afforded by the SBCBA (to include monthly MCLEs, legal research and online library access, reduced tuition at the University of Redlands, and annual legal Symposia in the fields of Family Law, Criminal Law, Civil Law, and Probate Law).
