Celebration of Leadership
Each year in June, the D.C. Bar Board of Governors and past presidents of the D.C. Bar host this gala dinner and annual meeting to recognize leaders in the profession and to celebrate outstanding contributions to the Bar. At the celebration, the new D.C. Bar president is sworn in and the Bar welcomes its newly elected officers, members of the Board of Governors, and ABA delegates. The evening also features the presentation of the Beatrice Rosenberg Award for Excellence in Government Service and the Justice Thurgood Marshall or Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. Public Interest Award. Outstanding D.C. Bar members, committees, sections, and projects are honored with other annual Bar awards.
At the 2014 Celebration of Leadership, outgoing D.C. Bar President Andrea Ferster will give remarks concluding her term as president. Brigida Benitez will be sworn in as the new D.C. Bar president and will end the evening with remarks about her upcoming term.
