The Massachusetts Bar Association kicked off the 2014-2015 association year at the President's Reception on Sept. 18, at the Boston Harbor Hotel. MBA President Marsha V. Kazarosian emphasized the importance of creating a strong MBA community and dedicated her year as president to fostering relationships--particularly between lawyers and judges--and furthering educational opportunities.

"As I mentioned earlier, 'It takes a village.' …The MBA wants to be your village. We are here to help, we have the resources and we want to provide you with what you need to succeed," Kazarosian said. "That is our commitment to you, and that is my goal for the MBA this year. Together, through education, unity, a strong partnership with our judiciary and a commitment to ensuring access to justice, I see the MBA as the community that will elevate our profession, and I'm incredibly honored to have this opportunity as your president to help make that happen."
