A wonderful evening event was hosted by Gold Theaters (a high end theater that specializes in pampering customers with first class accommodations) in Pasadena on November 15, 2011, at which time Pasadena Bar Association Board members met with Barristers Section members (a section of the Association that is composed of attorneys who have been practicing for less than five years). The event was organized by the Association's president - Steven Yee, who wanted to create opportunities for new attorneys to network with senior attorneys in the Association. The event also provided Board Members an opportunity to promote the Association to new attorneys and recruit them to assist in next year's events. In this regard, Steven Yee expressed his goal to bring new members to the Association and to keep the events lively and relevant to the Pasadena legal community.
In attendance were numerous recent law school graduates who are presently waiting for the California State Bar examination results, which is scheduled to be released before Thanksgiving Day.Vice President and Program Chair, Donald Schweitzer, recognized those who were waiting for their examination results and invited them to attend our holiday party free of charge, scheduled for December 8th, at which time they will be recognized and introduced to members of the Association.
During the evening, representatives from Gold Theater waited on those in attendance with an abundance of fine food and drink.Those in attendance were also given a tour of the six Gold Theatres, and a short presentation of how law firms can use the theater for company events. Without a doubt, the event proved to be a great time for all in attendance and a wonderful opportunity to socialize and network.
