PCBA's President's Message
It is an honor and a privilege to serve as your president for the coming year. Formalized in 1879, the Peoria County Bar Association began the treasured tradition of service to its members and the community. The committees work tirelessly to continue this tradition in challenging times for the legal profession. The PCBA has excelled in promoting respect and camaraderie among its members in every endeavor undertaken, whether it is one of our social events, a CLE, or our final tribute to our members at the memorial service.
My mission in the coming year is to continue the tradition of service to our members and the community. We will be introducing new CLE programs and formats to give our members more CLE opportunities including more updates. We will provide training to help you and your office embrace electronic filing. The PCBA is more than an association – it is a family of hard working and yes, fun-loving lawyers. We will help this family grow more diverse and even more talented with efforts such as the Peoria Legal Academy.
All these goals are prefaced with “we.” I know from over 38 years as a proud member of this association, the work is done by the determined work of the committees and the dedicated support of the members. I thank you for the opportunity to work with you in the coming year.
Jerelyn D. Maher
