The Richmond County Bar Association's Executive Board and Board of Directors held meetings during the months of July and August to ensure that the 2012-2013 term was enjoyable and successful.
As a brief recap, Carol Wojtovvicz, Esq. and the young lawyer's committee organized and coached the RCBA bowling team which competed every Wednesday night in June and July. On September 6, former President John Z. Marangos, Esq. sponsored a CLE at the McGinn Center on the grounds of Staten Island University Hospital. We look forward to having future CLE's at the McGinn Center and thank Staten Island University Hospital for its generosity. On September 13, Jack Stern, Esq., former President James Birch, Esq., Graig Martin, Esq. and Peter Martin, Esq. co-chaired the golf and tennis outing which not only resulted in a net profit but also provided attorneys, judges, real estate brokers, and members of the banking community with an opportunity to compete and enjoy a beautiful day.
On the fall schedule, Ray Liebman, Esq. and the Tax Committee will present a CLE on September 2 sponsored by Duane C. Felton, Esq., Judge McMahon will host a Guardianship CLE in the Supreme Court on October 4, Joseph Canepa, Esq. will moderate an Immigration CLE on [Immigration Consequences of Criminal Dispositions in NYS after Padilla v. Kentucky and C.P.L. 440, Post conviction Relief Practice] act on October 18 and as usual the Surrogate's Court Committee and Surrogate Gigante will offer a CLE at the Surrogate's Court in November.
In addition, to the CLE's Joseph O'Shea, Esq. will provide a great night of laughter and memories at the annual Night of Nostalgia and the holiday party plans are already underway. Your attendance and participation in these events affords you a wonderful opportunity to network, meet with old friends and colleagues and support the RCBA. We look forward to seeing you soon!
