Welcome to the
State Bar of Arizona Annual Convention

Message from the President

Dear Fellow State Bar of Arizona Members:

Welcome to the 2017 State Bar of Arizona Convention at the beautiful Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa in Tucson! Lisa Loo 2016

Our theme for the Convention is "Our Bar - Serving and Protecting the Public." It follows up on our theme from 2016, "My Bar - Our Future," and confirms the purpose of our Bar, as set forth in revised Supreme Court Rule 32. We have a dynamic Convention program as we celebrate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's 60th anniversary of her admission to the State Bar of Arizona, and commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Gault decision, assuring that juveniles receive the same due process rights as adults. These two milestones will be marked by plenary sessions that will be free to all members of our Bar. Whatever your practice areas may be, there will surely be a program that will be helpful, or of interest, to you.

We are fortunate to have two dynamic Convention co-chairs this year in Justice John Pelander and May Lu. They and the Convention Committee have put together a Convention designed for all of us whether you are celebrating your own 50th anniversary of admission to our Bar or whether you are a member of our Young Lawyers Division -- or someone in between. 

As you review our schedule of Convention programs and events, plan to learn a little more about a practice area, socialize, make new friends and network with your fellow Bar members. Visit our sponsors, whose generosity helps to underwrite some of the costs of presenting our Convention. Our Bar Convention is among the best in our country. We are proud to continue this 80-plus-year tradition.

My heartfelt thanks are extended to our co-chairs and each member of the Convention Committee. Let me also take this opportunity to thank my fellow Bar members, my colleagues, the Board of Governors and the professional staff at the Bar, including our CEO, John Phelps, for a wonderful Bar year. Our Convention concludes my term as your President.

On behalf of the State Bar of Arizona, Welcome to the 2017 State Bar Convention!
