As the 2019/20 Chair of the OBA's Family Law Section, I'd like to personally invite you to renew your section membership for the upcoming year.
Our section plays an important role in your OBA membership and offers an opportunity for us, as legal professionals, to share our experiences, learn from one another, keep up-to-date on important changes in our area of practice and forge lasting relationships that will contribute to our continued success.
Plus, as an OBA Section member, you can complete up to 6 of the substantive hours you need for your mandatory CPD requirement – for FREE – with your exclusive access to archived professional development programming.
This year, I invite you to join in and have your voice heard by participating in the development of continuing education programs, authoring articles for our section’s web page or by contributing to policy advocacy in the interests of our section and for the profession as a whole.
It is an exciting time for family law, including with the recent changes to the Divorce Act and the Ontario government’s roundtable discussions. From meeting with ministers to drafting and submitting policy papers, your Family Law Section executive has been working hard to represent our memberships interests throughout these processes – and we will continue to do so.
If you haven't already, please be sure to re-enroll in Sections for the upcoming membership year to make sure you don't miss out on any of this year's exciting initiatives and to ensure that you can make your voice heard.
I look forward to representing the OBA's Family Law Section this year, and hope to see you at our events throughout the year.
2019/20 Family Law Section Chair
