Special Event Celebrated Bar Members in Practice 50 Years

The 2016 NH Bar Association Annual Meeting on Oct. 28 included an expanded recognition of this year’s group of honorary members – those bar members in good standing who were admitted to practice law, in New Hampshire or elsewhere, 50 years ago.

NH Supreme Court Associate Justice Carol Ann Conboy, standing in for Chief Justice Linda Stewart Dalianis, presented certificates of recognition, signed by all five members of the Court, to the honorary members in attendance at the 50-year members’ reception, which was held just prior to the Honors and Awards Lunch at Sheraton in downtown Portsmouth. The honorary members were highlighted in a 10-minute slide show featuring photos, career highlights and inspirational quotes that the honorary members shared in Bar News questionnaires. Nine of the 15 honorees attended the reception, as well as fellow bar members, spouses and family.

Conboy said she hopes the expanded recognition of the honorary members can become an ongoing tradition for the NH Bar Association.
