Dear SCBA Member,
We need your help.
The Suffolk Academy of Law, the educational branch of The Suffolk County Bar Association, has provided attorneys with reasonably-priced, practice-building continuing legal education courses for more than three decades. Now, in these changing times, we face difficult financial challenges.
We strive, continuously, to meet the evolving needs of our constituents and to expand the services are provide; webcasting and on-demand Internet CLE are recent examples. We also continue to enhance our live programs (more than 100 a year!) with course-books of lasting relevance and convenient lunches and light suppers. But these days, trying to remain "in the black" while maintaining our commitment to responsive service has become difficult. We have provided more, but have not charged more. With awareness that today's economy has affected lawyers as well as other groups, we have not raised our tuition and, indeed, have lowered prices for a number of programs. Moreover, we are faced with-and fulfill- an ever-growing number of financial aid requests from attorneys who need continuing legal education to maintain their skills and knowledge, but are unable to pay for it.
Thus, we seek support from our main constituency, the SCBA membership. The Academy is a 501(c)(3) organization and is able to accept your tax-deductible donation. We respectfully ask that your give what you can to help the Academy maintain its drive for inventive growth, and most important, its commitment to the educational needs of all practicing attorneys in our region.
Wont you please take a moment, now, and call in your pledge to 631-234-5588.
Very truly yours,
Dorothy Ceparano, Academy Executive Director Gerard J. McCreight, Esq., Academy Treasurer
