Welcome to the Warren County Bar Association! We are honored that you are visiting our site, and hope that you will take the time to see all that the Warren County Bar has to offer its members. As I embark on my term as President, I admit it is slightly daunting. In a time where the word "President" conjures up all sorts of images of conventions, advertisements, and strong emotions, it is difficult to ascertain the role of a president of a bar association. But as I contemplated the many meanings of “President,” the same word kept resurfacing in my mind. Servant. A President is a servant of the people he or she is elected to represent. That I can do. My parents taught me that the most important thing you can do for someone is to serve and help them. That is my “mantra” for this upcoming year.
You are the membership. You are the “body” of this Association. We need to keep the “body” healthy, and to do so, we must listen to it. How can we serve you? What should the bar association look like? What can we do to incorporate the increasing diversity of our members and aid in the good work of the legal profession? If you are not a member, I encourage you to contact us and become one. We are always looking for new members, attorneys with vision to act together for the betterment of the legal profession and to enjoy comradery. So as we move forward in this year, I am excited about the prospects of new and invigorating programs tailored for you, the members. I am both humbled and honored to act as your servant for the next year, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this Association one of which we are all proud.
Karla Williams Buettner, Esq., President
