Welcome to the newly reconstructed website of the Rockland County Women’s Bar Association. The purpose of the Rockland County Women's Bar Association is to provide a network and support system for the women attorneys in Rockland County, to provide educational programs to our members and to address issues affecting all lawyers, both men and women. he Rockland County Women’s Bar Association was formed 28 years ago as a chapter of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York (“WBASNY”). Locally and through our involvement with WBASNY, and its eighteen chapters throughout the State we have an opportunity to work with men and women who are dedicated to advancing the status of women and children both in and out of the court system.Our programming is as varied as our members. We offer CLE classes in a wide array of practice areas the goal of which is always to provide practical, relevant and useful information. Our popular Book Review series gives us an opportunity to relax and enjoy each other’s company and to share ideas. Our sponsorship of charity walks allows us to exercise and to support organizations that share our commitment to improving the lives of women and children. Our Judicial Receptions and Annual Installation and Award Dinner allow us to highlight the accomplishments of our members and local leaders.
The Rockland County Women’s Bar Association believes in giving back to the community. In the past we have made financial contributions to The Rockland County YMCA Children’s Center at the Rockland County Family Court, the Legal Aid Society of Rockland County, the Mental Health Association of Rockland County and the American Cancer Society.
I am looking forward to a dynamic year, where we can strengthen our membership, provide professional development and hopefully have some fun. Please join us. Our membership application is only a click away!. If you would prefer to join RCWBA on-line and pay with a credit card you can do so on the WBASNY website. Just click the “JOIN WBASNY” tab and it will link you to the RCWBA on-line application.
If you have any ideas on what we can do to improve our chapter, please contact me. I am eager to hear everyone’s ideas and to working with you to take the Rockland County Women’s Bar Association to new heights of accomplishment.
Mindy R. Zlotogura, President.
