in bar association activities, which are open to all members of the legal community, and the establishment of bar association mentoring programs to “… expand discus- sion of civility questions and increase col- legiality…,” both of which are focal points for me this year. Judge Aspen’s Report on Civility is as important today as it was when it was issued in 1992. We have placed Judge Aspen’s report on the CBA Homep- age,, and I encourage you to review and adhere to its timeless recommendations. Civility improves our profession and makes us better people and better lawyers. The 2019 Vanguard Awards Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, April 10, in the beautiful Grand Ballroom of the Stan- dard Club. Please join us at this reception honoring Judge Aspen and 14 other very deserving recipients. I am certain that you will be inspired and impressed!
