On August 10-15 the American Bar Association held their annual meeting in New York City, where thousands of lawyers from across the country came together to promote issues of importance to the legal profession and learn from leading colleagues in the field.

 Monte E. Frank
Immediate Past President
  Monte Frank was appointed to the National Conference of Bar Presidents (NCBP) Executive Council. The NCBP provides information and training to state and local bar association leaders. The Executive Council and committees consist of recent bar presidents who attended the NCBP conferences when they were leading their bars and who want to share their experiences and perspectives with current bar leaders.

Attorney Frank served as CBA president for the 2016-2017 bar year and is a member of Pullman & Comley LLC's litigation practice, representing business and municipal clients in the state and federal courts in Connecticut and before administrative agencies on a wide range of matters.

Ndidi Moses
Vice President
  CBA Vice President Ndidi Moses graduated from the 2016-2017 TIPS Leadership Academy. This academy serves the public by providing participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop a vision to lead the legal profession and to improve leadership service in the community as a whole.

Attorney Moses is an assistant United States attorney. She is also the civil rights coordinator for the civil division at the United States Attorney's Office in New Haven, where she coordinates and prosecutes the division's civil rights issues.

 Barry C. Hawkins
Past President (2012-2013)
  Barry Hawkins was elected to the Board of Governors of the ABA. This 44-member board has the authority to act and speak for the American Bar Association, consistent with previous action of the House of Delegates, when the House is not in session. It oversees the general operation of the association and develops specific plans of action.

Past President Barry Hawkins (2012-2013) is a partner of Shipman Goodwin LLC where he practices in the areas of real estate and litigation. He is the author of numerous papers on real estate issues and has taught and lectured extensively on real estate, land use, and environmental issues.

 Dana M. Hrelic
Assistant-Secretary Treasurer

Dana Hrelic, CBA assistant secretary-treasurer and immediate past chair of the Young Lawyers Section, was installed as the new chair of the ABA's Young Lawyers Division for the 2017-2018 bar year. The division provides young lawyers and young lawyer organizations with the tools and opportunities for professional and personal success.

Attorney Hrelic is a partner at Horton Dowd Bartschi & Levesque PC in Hartford, where she represents clients in both state and federal civil, family, juvenile, and criminal appeals.

 Dwight H. Merriam
CBA Member
  Dwight Merriam received the Jefferson Fordham Society's Lifetime Achievement Award at the society's 20th annual luncheon. This award is presented in recognition of outstanding contributions to the practice of state and local government law by an individual over an entire career, for contributions over a number of years of service.
