Message From the President

Evan P. Freed

Dear Friends,

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..
