As many of you know, the Hispanic Ontario Lawyers’ Association (HOLA) was established in 2004 to support, strengthen, and raise awareness of the Latin American Hispanic legal community in Ontario. Since that time, we have grown and developed as an organization and have incorporated federally under the new name of the Canadian Hispanic Bar Association (CHBA).
On June 22nd, 2017, the CHBA elected a new Board of Directors. Our seven member team is excited for the upcoming two-year term. We will be working toward achieving the following goals as part of our strategic plan:
1. Enhancing membership communication and engagement
2. Increasing membership and awareness of the CHBA across Canada
3. Improving Board effectiveness and overall governance
4. Assuring the ongoing financial viability of the CHBA
We look forward to building on all that we have achieved to date and to setting out a new path to promote the advancement of Latin American and Hispanics in the legal profession.
¡Con su apoyo, sí se puede!
Veronica Marson, President – Canadian Hispanic Bar Association
