Last week, I attended a meeting at the Suffolk County Bar Association for the very first time. The meeting was a leadership development seminar, and I was asked to attend on behalf of Amistad Long Island Black Bar Association. This seminar did not disappoint! It was such a great learning experience. Everyone present was friendly and attentive. I felt very comfortable socializing and networking with everyone present. I’m excited for the next event the bar association will host!
