The Fresno County Bar Association Membership Committee provides the energy and impetus for the generation of new members for the Association. The committee is charged with the responsibility of maintaining a current membership list including all local attorneys on paid active status. The Membership Committee also is active in handling questions from the members concerning services available to them from the Association and in soliciting members comments on new areas of interest within the legal community so that new programs or changes in existing programs can be implemented to best serve member attorneys.
There are two evening social events each year. The first is the Annual Judicial Appreciation Night, usually held as an informal Social Event in early to mid-September, honoring the judges of Fresno County.
