President's Message


Dear Members of the Buncombe County Bar,

I am proud and honored to serve as President of the Buncombe County Bar for the 2023-2024 year. Time and time again, lawyers from across the state, refer to the Buncombe County Bar as the best in the state, and I fully agree. We have earned this title due to our commitment to each other, the practice of law and those we serve in our community. I am thankful that I follow in a long and prestigious line of Bar Presidents who have fostered and focused on professional collegiality and toward ensuring that the bar provides value and support to its members.

In the upcoming year, I will continue this focus. I challenge each of you to attend a bar event, whether it is a monthly bar meeting at the Asheville Social Club, the Halloween party, Christmas Party, or our annual Spring Picnic. You never know who you will meet and what stories will be shared. I, for one, look forward to meeting those I have yet to meet and seeing those of you again that I know well.

Here's to a successful year. Thank you for allowing me to serve.

Janet Amburgey
