 President's Message - January 2012

By Betsy Snyder Fortino

     Many thanks to our members for giving me this opportunity to serve as President of the Oneida County Bar Associa-tion. Special thanks to our Immediate Past President Peter M. Hobaica and to all Past Presidents for your helpful words of wisdom. It is so very much appreciated. Thanks is due as well to all of the committee chairs who do so much to make the Association stronger. Moreover, thanks to Donald Gerace, Robert Julian and Michael Stephens for their service to the Board. Recognition and appreciation is extended to Diane Davis for her assistance in making a smooth transition possible. We extend a warm welcome to our current officers and board of directors. We are fortunate to have attorneys from all different areas of practice, from the district attorney’s office to private practice. Hopefully, this year will not only be productive, but will be one of enjoyment for all. Please everyone try to attend one event, or do one pro bono case, or submit an article to the newsletter in your area of expertise, or share your special talent in the arts with the membership. We have so much to learn from each other. Once again, it is indeed a privilege to help steer our ship this year to do wonderful things, but it is you who makes this Association all that it can be. Thanks for all your efforts. Please "like" us on Facebook and "follow" us on Twitter. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to send an email to: I leave you with our mission as a Bar Association and ask for you to help us achieve our mission goals this year.
