What an honor it is to serve as your WBA President for the 2016-2017 bar year. As we stand on the cusp of the Association’s 100th birthday – our Centennial Celebration - I look forward to leading the Association onward, as we “look back, and move forward.” The Women’s Bar Association of the District of Columbia has been fighting for equality, advancement, and social justice for almost 100 years. It is indeed important, that we reflect on the great work we’ve done over the past century, and honor the women who came before us and upon whose shoulders we stand today. Let us not be remiss: the work that we do is still vital today, and although we’re approaching a wonderful milestone, it’s crucial that we continue to move forward, and do the work that’s made us great and which our members expect.
