President’s Message

Welcome to the Buncombe County Bar Website. The executive committee of the Buncombe Bar is gearing up for another year of exciting programming for our members and guests including the monthly Bar luncheons, a variety of low-cost CLE offerings, a mentorship program, ample pro bono opportunities, a holiday party and spring picnic, and many other events throughout the year.

The Buncombe Bar is an organization which greatly values fellowship and professionalism amongst its members. Our tradition of being kind, courteous and professional to each other, even when our interactions are adversarial, is one that must be encouraged and nurtured. With that in mind, I challenge you to take time to cultivate and maintain relationships with friends and colleagues by attending the Bar luncheons and other events of the Buncombe Bar.

Please mark your calendars for the monthly Bar luncheons, which occur on the second Wednesday of each month at Celine & Company located at 49 Broadway St. in downtown Asheville. President-Elect Sonya Rikhye has put together an excellent line-up of guest speakers. I look forward to seeing you there.

Anne Salter
President, Buncombe County Bar
