Taylor Porter Partner Amy Lambert is midway through her tenure as 2019 President of the Baton Rouge Bar Association. She is leading the legal professional organization into the milestone of the 90th Anniversary of one of the largest voluntary bar associations in the State of Louisiana with more than 2,500 lawyers.
A special event to celebrate this milestone will be held on Aug. 16 at the City Club of Baton Rouge, and Amy has worked with BRBA staff and officers on various events throughout the year to recognize the theme she set forth in January at her presi-dency installation — a yearlong celebration of what it means to be a Baton Rouge lawyer.
“The 90th anniversary of any association — especially a voluntary legal association of individuals whose core values of civility with one another and service to the community have been unwavering throughout its existence — is something that deserves celebration not just one day but all year long,” Lambert said. “We will take time this year to celebrate our accomplishments of the past, strive to make our association rele-vant for the present, and finally take the time to prepare our asso-ciation for the future.”
In April, the BRBA held its annual Bench Bar Conference in Point Clear, Alabama, with the theme of “Uniquely Louisiana,” celebrating the state’s particular culture of treating each other with respect and professionalism. The conference brings together attorneys and judges for 12.5 hours of CLE seminars and various social events throughout the three days. May was BRBA Member Appreciation Month offering firms and attorneys CLE seminars, headshots and logo designs. Along with the 90th Anniversary Celebration in August, this Fall will feature the annual Belly Up with the Bar in September and the end-of-the-year “CLE By The Hour” event in December.
