I wish to extend a greeting to all our NIABA members and visitors to our website in conjunction with my position as President of the National Italian Bar Association.
NIABA is a very important organization because we meet to remember and cherish our background and cultural roots. We celebrate our heritage as well as celebrate our American citizenship. Moreover, we don’t forget our origins and where we came from.
If you are considering membership, I hope you will join us in our efforts. And I urge all members of NIABA to become active, to participate in meetings, to assist us in our lobbying efforts, to create articles for our journals, and to attend the Board meetings as delegates.
I look forward to working with all the Board of Directors, and all members of NIABA in the months ahead and wish everyone, “buona fortuna.”
Very truly yours,
Mourning a Great Loss
NIABA joins all of America in mourning the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, a giant in the legal profession and one of America's greatest jurists. Moreover, we all mourn the loss of one of our own brothers in the Italian-American fold.
His success provides inspiration to all of us regarding the enduring power of the American dream and the possibilities for all Italian-Americans in the legal and professional fields. He will continue to inspire us all. Buon riposo.
