He encourages
newly minted
lawyers to do the
same. Combs
shared that he
will continue
the successful
initiatives imple-

to bring lawyers together. I’m lucky in
that socializing with other lawyers is one
of my favorite things to do. I love to see
the CBA acting as a catalyst for bringing
lawyers together — on the softball field,
at the Bar Center, on the golf course,
and everywhere in between.” com-
mented Combs. “I also hope to continue
to address the challenge of relevance
and membership. At the CBA, we need
to look at new ways to deliver the same
level of service and programs while using
technology to lower costs.” It is through
“focusing on social media and other
technology,” explained Combs, “that we
can continue to attract and retain young,
diverse legal talent.”
Combs expects that his year as CBA
president will go quickly, but he is excited
about serving in this ultimate leadership
role and doing what he can to keep the
Bar moving forward. “As I am sure is
the case with any CBA president, I hope
to continue to further our mission and
vision in everything we do. However, I’m
under no illusions that this year will be
anything but very fast.”
