3 Message from the Outgoing President Tara Auciello, Esq. (on the Occasion of the Middlesex County Bar Association's 200th Anniversary on June 13, 2114) This evening I am so very humbled to be standing before you as the one hundred ninety-ninth President in celebration of the two hundredth anniversary of the Middlesex County Bar Association. To those of you who are here in person, kindly disable your time-travel brain functions in order that we can properly "live in the moment" and consider how far this Association has come since our foreparents celebrated the MCBA's centennial in June (For those of you who are attending in hologram and/or clone form, welcome!) In the last hundred years, the MCBA has continued to be the best bar association in New Jersey, inspired by the legacy left by our first hundred boards of trustees. For example, the work of one of those boards allowed the MCBA to move from a small room in the Courthouse to a stand-alone building owned by the Middlesex County Bar Foundation. It was in that building that the MCBA held thousands of CLE seminars, both before and after CLE became mandatory, propelling our Association to the forefront of legal education in the state. During the first hundred years of the MCBA's existence, membership grew from just a few pioneers to 1420 members at the time of the centennial celebration. Different types of membership were created (law students, legal secretaries, etc.) and a spirit of inclusion and collegiality was cultivated by the many officers and trustees who led the Association. Eventually, the board decided that full-time staff members were needed to help the MCBA realize its potential, and those dedicated professionals enjoyed long tenures with the Association. Toward the end of the MCBA's first hundred years, the Association elected its first African- American officer, a community-minded attorney named Renee Anthony, Esq. Inspired by and impressed with Renee's service, in the years that followed the members continued to elect leaders from a diverse range of ethnicities, practice areas, firm sizes, geographic locations, religions, sexual orientations, and ages. I believe that the biggest achievements during my Presidency have been the creation of the Cryogenics Law committee and the addition of hovercraft parking spaces on our roof. After all, the MCBA accomplished so many important and forward-thinking objectives in its first hundred years that those achievements were hard to beat! On a personal note, I would be remiss if I did not thank my great great grandfather, MCBA and MCBF Past President Dennis Alan Auciello, Esq. My namesake and great aunt Tara, who also served as President of both the Association and Foundation, often regaled me with tales of his tireless dedication to the MCBA and MCBF. On behalf of all MCBA Past Presidents, trustees, members, and employees, congratulations on the first and second hundred years! Long live the mighty Middlesex County Bar Association!

7 Message from the President Ellen F. Schwartz, Esq. Welcome to our One Hundredth Anniversary Gala Celebration! I want to begin by congratulating all of our award recipients tonight. They are the shining lights of our profession, the individuals who set the standard to which we all aspire. They have shown us, by example, how to be good lawyers, good citizens, and good people. I am proud to be in their company. In crafting her Message from the President, Renèe Anthony wrote about a spark that led to her becoming involved in the Middlesex County Bar Association, and ultimately, becoming the organization s first African-American President in that year. We lost Renèe in October of 2013, but her legacy remains with us. She encouraged us to get out from behind our desks, and from our comfy chairs in the board room, and to get out into the community and do some good. That doing good included working on home rehabilitation projects for the needy in Woodbridge; preparing and serving meals at Elijah s Promise soup kitchen in New Brunswick; and providing a safe Halloween for the kids in New Brunswick with our Trunk or Treat project. Our outgoing President, Tara Auciello, continued the efforts that Renèe began, and added her own initiative to the work of our Board. Tara reminded us that our organization is only as strong and healthy as its individual members, and encouraged us to reach out a hand to our colleagues in transition. That included attorneys who were coming to the profession later in life, attorneys who were transitioning from one area of the law to another, attorneys who were relocating to New Jersey from other jurisdictions and had to become familiar with our practice rules, and last but not least, young attorneys just coming into the profession and trying to find their way. I am proud and humbled to be able to follow these two outstanding leaders, as I become the President of the Middlesex County Bar Association in this, its one hundredth year. Milestone anniversaries such as this one tend to encourage reflection, and I have had an extra month to reflect on my new responsibilities, given the scheduling of tonight s gala event. It is to the benefit of the MCBA that Tara Auciello, who did an outstanding job as President, got to serve an extra month in that capacity. Tara proved herself to be an exceptionally poised, efficient, organized and capable leader, with enviable people skills, and I hope she will remain an active Board member for as long as possible. I am truly fortunate to have an outstanding Executive Board to work with this year; Craig Aronow, Andrea Sullivan, Brenda Vallecilla, Bill Isele, and Joanne Vos are all hard-working and committed individuals who bring a wealth of talent to the MCBA. Rounding out our leadership team is the incomparable Jonathan Cowles, our Executive Director, who is now entering his twenty-fourth year in that capacity, and is superb at his job, and Assistant Director Elaine Miller and LRS Administrator Pattyann Pulda, 25 and 18 years at the bar, respectively. We are also fortunate to have the support of our bench, and our Assignment Judge, the Hon. Travis Francis, AJSC, has set the tone in forging an exemplary bench-bar relationship in this county. I have also had an opportunity to reflect on the challenges that our organization, and our profession as a whole, will face in the upcoming years. The past few years have brought us a turbulent economy, and our profession has certainly felt the impact of the bursting of the tech bubble, of the mortgage foreclosure crisis, and a depressed real estate market. Attorneys who were previously engaged in practices in those related areas now find themselves searching for other ways to utilize their skills. Now, more than ever, the Bar Association is called upon to provide services to our members that can give them real assistance when they need it most. From our cost-effective Continuing Legal Education programs, to our Lawyer Referral Service, to our Mentor Program, to our job search website, the MCBA is there for its members. We recognize and understand our role in the legal community, and we stand ready, willing and able to assist our members in a variety of ways. When people ask me why they should become a member of the MCBA, my answer is simple: we are lawyers helping lawyers, helping the court system function more effectively, and helping our communities. Also, you get to make new friends, as many of the lawyers that I have worked with over the past eight years practice law in an area (See President s Message on page 20)

(President s Message continued from page 7) different from mine, and if not for our work with the Bar Association, we probably would not have met at all. What could be better than all of that? In another four years, if all goes according to plan, we will celebrate the installation of our first Latina President, when Brenda Vallecilla takes the reins in We encourage and celebrate the diversity of our membership, and our Executive Board, and there is a seat at the Board table for anyone who has the desire to assume a leadership role in the organization. So, after much reflection, I have reached a few conclusions. There is a great deal to be proud of, in terms of the work the MCBA has done in its first century, and the work it continues to do each and every day. There are new challenges to be met, and conquered, and we have in place a leadership team that is more than capable of meeting those challenges. What we need, in a word, is YOU. Take pride in our profession; the right to put Esq. after our names is earned, not given. Take pride in your ability to reach a hand out and provide assistance to those who need it most, either by volunteering your time through Central Jersey Legal Services as a pro bono attorney, or by participating in a Bar Association project. The lawyers that I know, and work with every day, are intelligent, compassionate, motivated individuals who have interests far beyond the courtroom, and skills that they can use to great effect. If you have an idea for a project, let us know. If you have a topic that you would like to see addressed in a CLE seminar, or you would like to share your expertise by presenting a CLE seminar yourself, let us know. In conclusion, I hope that you enjoy this evening, our 100th Anniversary Gala Celebration. A lot of people have worked very hard for more than a year to put this event together, and we are very pleased that you could join us this evening. Congratulations to our incoming Executive Board; congratulations to Tara on a job well done; and again, congratulations and thanks to our Wilentz Lifetime Award winners, the best of the best in our profession.
