Message From Our President
The first time I attended the NCVAA was in 2011 in Washington, D.C. I was impressed with the high-caliber conference filled with dynamic speakers, trailblazers, judges, jurists, and attorneys. I was able to meet and befriended people that I otherwise would not have had the chance to do so. That conference impacted my life in many ways– from making many lifelong friends and meeting many of my current mentors to forming the Vietnamese American Bar Association of Georgia (VABA-GA). I am honored and proud to be a part of NCVAA, and I invite you to join us, through membership, attendance and sponsorship, as we continue to advocate for, serve and give back to the community.
This year, NCVAA will hold its 12th annual conference on August 3-4, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. The event will be co-hosted by the Vietnamese American Bar Association of Georgia (VABA-GA). Adding to the excitement, NCVAA will also be hosting its first Barristers’ Ball at the W Atlanta-Midtown Hotel.
Our conference kicks off on Friday, August 3, 2018 with a reception and networking event with over100 expected attendees, followed by a full-day conference with approved continuing legal education credits (usually 5 or 6 credits) the next day. The conference ends with an awe-inspiring and entertaining Barristers’ Ball (a black-tie event) with over 300 expected attendees, during which time two exceptional students will be presented with academic scholarships.
Thank you so much for lending a hand in celebrating and promoting diversity in the legal profession and giving back to our community at large. I look forward to seeing you at the conference.
