Message From the President
Evan P. Freed
I want to begin by thanking 2016 President Louis Sepe for his outstanding
contributions and hard work during his year of Presidency and, of course,
I thank all Past Presidents for their guidance over the years.
Happy 2017 to our returning and new members, and welcome to what I envision
will be another great year for the Criminal Courts Bar Association.
Our organization's success would be impossible without the support
of our members, fantastic and generous sponsors, and our elected Officers
and Board of Directors. I want to take this opportunity to thank you and
recognize all of you for helping to carry us into our 64th year.
I hope you are as excited as I am about 2017. We are planning relevant
and interesting MCLE accredited dinner meetings and events and I ask for
your involvement and attendance. Bring a friend, family member or colleague
to our events. Encourage others to become CCBA members and to join us
as sponsors. We have an open door policy to all members of the criminal
law community including defense attorneys, prosecutors, judges, private
investigators and others, whether just beginning, active or retired. The
ability to meet, greet and network cannot be overstated..
On Saturday, March 25, 2017, CCBA will recognize the following individuals
at our annual awards dinner:
MORT HERBERT SERVICE AWARD
JOHNNIE COCHRAN AWARD
