President's Message

Happy New Year HABA!   

I am honored and excited to say in my first message as HABA President that we start out this year celebrating not one, but two investiture ceremonies for Judge Adam C. Yang and Judge P. Paul Yang.  Both judges would love to see you at their investiture ceremony and have extended an invitation for you to join them (see below).   

With the new year, many of us are settling back into our pre-holiday routines, or maybe some of us are starting something new this year, whether it be a new job, new role, or trying to incorporate some New Year resolutions!  I recently heard that instead of "losing weight and eating healthier" being the usual resolution, many had as their top priority to "be a better person".  This resonated with me as I am sure many of us are examining our own behaviors and impact on others in view of the current social-political climate - no matter where we fall on the spectrum. Your HABA Board is no different as we are committed to being a better bar association for you.  We have a full 2019 schedule outlined and look forward to hearing from you about what you would like to see in addition this year.

- Mai Lee Yang, HABA President
