Happy Holidays, OBI!

The 2023 Boston Conference was a great success! For those who attended the conference, I hope you enjoyed it. For those who were unable to attend, I hope to see you in 2024! Thank you to Kelly Hannon and Kelsey Hammel, as well as the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers for their hospitality and hard work in conference planning. What a wonderful conference; great job!

I am thrilled to announce the 2024 OBI Conference location is San Antonio. The conference will be held from October 15-18 at the Embassy Suites Riverwalk Downtown. If you have any topics that you would like to see on the agenda or are interested in assisting with the planning of this conference, please contact me to discuss. Please share this information with the decision makers in your office and request budgeting for travel if you are interested in attending. This conference will be our 20th Anniversary Conference, and we would like to invite former OBI alumni to attend.

The OBI website will be undergoing a redesign in the coming weeks. Please visit the site and provide the OBI Website Committee with any feedback, updates, or suggestions for useful resources and tools you may have. Thank you to Alison Picione and Katie McAfee for their time and efforts on this project.

Congratulations to Melissa Cordova on her election to the OBI Board. I would like to thank our Board members, committee chairs, and committee members for their time and dedication to this great organization. If you would like to become more involved in OBI, please reach out to the Board.

Wishing you and yours a Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Jim Easoz
OBI President
