Dear KCRA members,

Welcome to Summer! It’s definitely here and someone cranked up the heat.  I mean, are we even in Kansas or did we all get transported down to the hottest place in South America during the two-day Spring we just had?   

Anyhow, it’s been far too long since we’ve all been able to see each other, while at the same time, it seems we’ve all been busier than ever before.  With trials having started back up across the state and attorneys getting back to depositions in full swing, I think most are feeling like we can’t keep our heads above water.  But for our own mental and physical health, it is important to remember that we must work to maintain a work and home life balance, no matter how hard that may be sometimes.

I’m very excited we will be holding an in-person convention this year, even if it’s just for one day.  I can’t wait to see everyone again.  Jennifer Olsen has been working tirelessly on everything related to convention, and the lineup is proving not to disappoint.  With convention at The Oread Hotel in Lawrence this year, I am excited that we will be able to hold an outdoor welcome reception (weather permitting) on the rooftop terrace of the hotel, which overlooks the entire KU campus and most of Lawrence.  In the Fall, I cannot even explain how beautiful of a view this is.  Watch your e-mail for registration information coming soon.

And, finally, a few quick reminders: 

  1. If you have any pictures or information that highlight any of our members, please send those to Mary Kay Howe at mhowe@douglascountyks.org.
  2. Membership renewal is running now and are due by the end of June.  You should have received an e-mail notification.  If you have any questions about your renewal, please contact Mary Kay Howe at mhowe@douglascountyks.org.
  3. KCRA is looking for volunteers to help with board service and/or committee service.  If you are someone, seasoned or new to KCRA, who would be interested in serving your association and its members, please reach out to me at mcummings@jfdistcourt.com or Jennifer Olsen at jolsen@shawneecourt.org.  There are a number of committees in all different areas.  If you think you would enjoy one committee over another, please let us know.    

Have a great Summer and see you in the Fall!!
