Welcome to the Peoria County Bar Association

President's Message

Still time to get your mandatory CLE before the end of June!  In the event that you have not gotten all of your CLE done the PCBA has several programs this month for you.  In honor of mental health awareness month, the PCBA is offering three mental health seminars that are available live at the PCBA or via webinar:  Mental Health Treatment for the Client on May 18Dealing with Attorney Mental Health Issues on May 20, and The Attorney-Client Relationship when the Client becomes Incapacitated on May 23.

Also, please plan to attend our annual Memorial Service to remember those of our members, at the right, who have passed away during the last 12 months. The program starts at 10:30 a.m. in courtroom 210 on Thursday, May 26.  Following the service there will be a reception in the Jury Commission Room.  I hope to see many of you there.
