Message From The President
To serve as President for the Collier County Women’s Bar Association’s 24th year is an honor and a privilege. This organization was among the first recommended to me as a brand new Naples lawyer, and what a difference the CCWBA has made in my career over the years. Through the luncheons, special events, and committee and Board service I made countless professional and personal connections and learned so much about the practice and business of law. The CCWBA’s past leaders, sponsors, and members built an amazingly supportive, accomplished community, and we are honored to continue that tradition during the 2016-2017 year.
We will kick off this year with an August happy hour to welcome our new members and catch up with our valued returning members, and have an exciting line-up of monthly luncheons and special events planned, including our Holiday Party trivia and Networking Extravaganza. We will recognize our fantastic judges at the Judicial Appreciation Luncheon, and close the year with a celebration of the CCWBA’s Woman Lawyer of the Year.
I hope that our new and continuing members and sponsors will derive the same benefit from the CCWBA that I always have, and encourage you to attend our events, try a Table for Eight, and volunteer for one of our committees this year. It is your strong support that makes the CCWBA such a valuable resource for Collier County’s legal community!
Christen Spake, CCWBA President 2016-2017
