Congratulations Melissa (“Missy”) York!

As of July 1, 2020, I am now the President of the Young Lawyers Conference (“YLC”) of the Virginia State Bar. The YLC is comprised of more than 10,000 members, who are Virginia attorneys under 36 years of age or who have been admitted as active, practicing lawyers of their first bar for fewer than three years. The YLC provides leadership opportunities, continuing education, and opportunities to serve the community and the profession.  Through YLC projects, young lawyers participate in governing the Virginia State Bar, serve the profession and the public, and enhance the public awareness of the legal profession.   Her term will run through June 30, 2021.
