In other action, the members approved the 2006 budget as well as the financial statements from 2005.  Treasurer Taylor reported that the Association is in good financial condition, and in fact added to the surplus in 2005, despite the establishment of the Executive Director position and substantial contributions to the LLA Foundation.

Outgoing President Lubin reported to the membership on his very active term.  The significant goal of providing local continuing legal education has commenced and the LLA is sponsoring monthly lunch and learn sessions.  The LLA Foundation has begun to increase its involvement in the community, assisted by the newly formed Community Activities and Outreach Committee.  He also reported on the increased activity of the young lawyers division, with monthly meetings and scheduled events.  The Association has fully integrated its finances with those of the Lycoming Reporter, and the Executive Director has implemented accounting programs that have reduced outside accountant costs.  Finally he reported on the move to larger offices scheduled for later this year and the likely hiring of a part-time staff person.

Committee heads also reported on the activities of LLA committees.  Read the President's report as well as budget and financial information and committee reports at:  www.lycolaw.org/members/AnnualMeeting/meeting.asp
