Welcome to the Peoria County Bar Association

President's Message



Thank you very much!

Thanks to the members of the Peoria County Bar Association for the privilege of being your president during the past year. It has been my great honor to serve as your president during the same year that I marked the 40th anniversary of my admission to the bar. We are lucky that the collegiality of our local bar makes the practice of law in Central Illinois more enjoyable than any other area of the State.

The continued success of the PCBA is attributable to the efforts of many people. First, I want to thank Linda and Stephanie for tirelessly keeping me and everyone who participates in our activities on track. Next, I want to thank the committee members, their chairs and vice chairs, and the entire board for devoting their time and talents to enhance the benefits of membership in our Association, as well as helping us enhance the reputation of our profession.

I cannot believe how quickly my tenure has passed. Please join me at our Annual Meeting on July 11th as we welcome Judge Jerelyn Maher as our new president. If you want to register now, click here. Finally, thank you again for this opportunity to serve and for all that you have done for your PCBA.
