4 Presidents Message Continued from Page 3 tice law program. Our programming year will conclude in December with our swearing-in event at which newly admitted attorneys can be sworn-in to the Central District bar. I would like to thank each of our board members for their efforts this year in planning these pro- grams and events. I also want to thank all of our FBAOC members for their continued support. If you are not yet a member I encourage you to join. Membership comes with many benefits including discounted admission rates to FBAOC programs. Membership information can be found on the FBAOC website at www.fbaoc.com. In addition I would like to thank our twenty-eight law firm and corporate sponsors. Sponsorships are available at a large firm small firm and corpo- rate level. Sponsors receive tickets to our bench and bar Judges Night and civil or criminal prac- tice programs as well as recognition at our events. For more information about becoming a FBAOC sponsor and the benefits of sponsorship please see our website. It has been an honor and privilege to serve as pres- ident of the FBAOC this year. As Pani Abdollahi follows as our next chapter president I am confi- dent that 2016 will be another successful year. I look forward to seeing you at upcoming FBA OC events. _________________________ Matt Bellinger is a partner in the Orange County of- fice of Knobbe Martens and is President of the Federal Bar Association Orange County chapter.
