A La Jolla Institution Since 1984

Message from 2016 La Jolla Bar Association President, Donald Lincoln

LBJA-PresidentLincolnDear La Jolla Bar Association Members:

I am honored to act as the 2016 La Jolla Bar Association President, and pleased to join with the other Officers and Directors in serving you this year.

Our Association has grown steadily since its 1984 inception, with significant increase to membership these past few years.

Consider Participating in the Activities of this Association’s Committees

As have previous Presidents I encourage our members to participate in Association activities. The other Board members and I consider this a priority and invite and encourage you to attend the monthly luncheons and the annual beach and holiday parties, as well as to join and participate on one or more of the following Committees: Speakers Committee; Website Committee; Membership Committee; and Social Committee.

If you have interest in these Committees, or would like to learn more about the Committee’s activities, please contact the following persons:

Speakers Committee:

Website Committee:

Membership Committee:

Social Committee:

Review Your Information on the Website

The first 3 to 4 months of the year are the most active for our Website Committee, with additions of new members’ information, and updating of existing members’ information. Please make it a point to review your information on the Association Website, to ensure that your information is updated and accurate. If you have questions regarding submission of information for inclusion on the Website, please contact the Website Committee members identified above, and if submitting a photograph for insertion into your member profile, please confirm with them the acceptable format.

Also, when you review your personal information on the Website, please take a moment and look at other Website features or content. Should you have any suggestions, recommendations, or other productive comments, please e-mail or otherwise communicate it to the above-identified Website Committee members, and kindly send me copy of the same.

Please Attend the Monthly Luncheons & Annual Summer Beach and December Holiday Parties

The La Jolla Bar Association’s monthly “no-host” luncheons are held at the Manhattan of La Jolla Restaurant (located within the Empress Hotel, at the corner of Fay at Silverado). The luncheons get underway at noon, and are held the second Thursday of the month, except for August and December (when our beach and holiday parties take place, and we do not meet for lunch). The La Jolla Bar Association is a California State Bar approved MCLE provider, and our Speakers Committee strives to have the lunchtime presentations qualify for MCLE credit.

Our association’s annual social events are the beach party held in August, and the holiday party held in December (at which time election is held for the upcoming year’s Officers & Directors). Both of these parties are relaxed and enjoyable events, and provide opportunity for all members to visit with one another, including those who may be unable to regularly attend the monthly luncheons.

Please attend as many of these activities as your calendar permits.

To whatever extent you can actively participate on the association’s committees, and assist with planning and organizing lunch programs and social events, please do so – you are invited and welcomed! If you cannot be as actively involved, please attend the events whenever you are able to do so.

I look forward to seeing you at these future events.

My best wishes for your good health and well-being throughout 2016.


Don Lincoln

La Jolla Bar Association 2016 President
