Find out more about recent RCBA events and volunteer opportunites.
The Racine County Bar Association held its annual meeting this past Monday, May 21, 2018, at Corner House Restaurant in Racine. We were treated to a presentation on Cyber Security and upcoming legal obligations for firms and businesses dealing with confidential information by JoAnne Breese-Jaeck of Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company.
The RCBA also conducted annual business. We recognized Attorney Matthew Johnson as he completed his year as Bar President and transitions to Past-President. We also recognized Attorney Peter Wyant as he transitions from President-Elect to President. Lastly, we recognized Attorney Jennifer Hemmer, as the incoming President-Elect. The remaining officers shall continue their roles within the RCBA: Carrie Michelson as Secretary, Eric Markusen as Treasurer, and Brian Dimmer as Technology Officer.
Second, we confirmed the election and re-election of RCBA Board of Governor positions. Both Attorneys Jillian Scheidegger and Devin Stasek will continue as board members, as they complete partial terms and now begin a three-year term of their own. Additionally, Joe Kremkoski has been nominated by the RCBA nominating committee to complete Jennifer Hemmer’s board seat, which expires in 2019.
Lastly, we voted on the amended by-laws, which were unanimously approved. We're looking forward to another great year of dinner meetings, networking events, CLE's, and community service opportunities!
