NIABA to Visit the Big Easy

Hello NIABA members and friends,

When I was elected President of NIABA in 2013, I decided early on that I would convene a meeting of the Board of Directors of the association in the city of New Orleans. Being a Canadian of Italian ancestry living in the French-speaking province of Québec, I had always developed an affinity for the French lineage of the State of Louisiana and was determined to finally settle my curiosity and visit the Big Easy. As such, from February 26 to March 1, 2015, the Board of Directors of NIABA will hold its Winter Meeting in this very special city.

Here, where Europe and the Caribbean meet in the American South, the history is as colorful as the local architecture. The food is the stuff of legend. “Instrumental” in creating jazz, Haitian and African Creoles developed an exotic, spicy cuisine. Spanish style and Creole builders gave New Orleans the St. Louis Cathedral, named for Louis IX, sainted King of France. The street names are French and Spanish, the Creole architecture comes in a carnival of tropical colors, and the voodoo is a Caribbean import. Hey – I know it’s tempting. It’s never too late to come and join us!

And so it is here, in this incredible American city, where we lawyers of Italian extraction will continue to set the course and direction of our organization. Like the Italian immigrants before us who converged on New Orleans in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, we will work hard to advance the interests of our beloved NIABA. And once we have accomplished what we set out to do, we will – as the Cajun saying goes – Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!)

My very best regards,
Dino Mazzone
