I have been a WBAI member for a number of years. Among the benefits men can obtain from WBAI membership are the great networking opportunities, especially with judges both state and federal, which WBAI offers. Every year women, as well as men, become members of our judiciary. WBAI events, such as its outstanding Annual Judges’ Night, are great ways for new lawyers, and all lawyers, to meet these judges, along with other leaders of our profession. I am glad I am a WBAI member, and I encourage all attorneys, men and women, to join the WBAI and to participate actively in WBAI events and programs. You too will be glad you did.

I attended the Naveen’s Cuisine WBAI event for the first time a few years ago, because a friend invited me and it sounded fun. I had a great time and met some amazing women, and that is consistently the case whenever I attend WBAI events. It’s been a very welcoming group of women, and a good way for me to get to know others with different types of practices from my own.
