THE ADVOCATE 869 VOL. 75 PART 6 NOVEMBER 2017 Further details relating to VBA member child care services and upcoming events can be found on our new and improved website: <www.vancouver bar.ca>. Over the past four years, we have enjoyed sponsorship from the Counsel Network, our preferred legal recruiter, as well as their assistance in organizing, and driving attendance to, several of our events. We thank them for their assistance in making these events the successes they were and look forward to continuing working with them in 2017–18. As the VBA is a not-for-profit society, all of the money made on our events is used to fund our other endeavours and to sponsor causes or events that fall within the mandate set out in our constitution. In 2016–2017, the VBA sponsored the Justice Education Society, the CBABC’s Benevolent Society, Touchstone Theatre’s The Lawyer Show, and Access Pro Bono’s Dial-a-Lawyer Day, among others. We also continue to sponsor the Inns of Court program, which is coordinated by Michael Libby. This important program is based on the English tradition of junior lawyers meeting informally with senior practitioners and the judiciary over dinner to talk about both current and perennial issues in the practice. As we look ahead, the VBA will continue to put on the events for which we are known, which provide our members the opportunity to gather as colleagues and friends, away from the pressures of a file, and which further the VBA’s goal of promoting civility and collegiality among our members and the larger bar. In addition, the VBA will continue to look for new ways in which we may be of service to our members. To that end, we are always pleased to hear from our members, and encourage members to look us up and engage with us through our website, on Twitter (@VanBarAssoc) or on Facebook. None of this would be possible without our members, their firms and our partners. We are grateful for their continued support. t t t t t
