Attorneys in Public Service
Co-Chair Alina Buccella, Esq
The Attorneys in the Public Service Committee was formed to increase participation by public sector attorneys in the Albany County Bar Association. Attorneys that work for local, county, state and federal governmental agencies have differing needs than attorneys that practice in the private sector, and as such the APS Committee is committed to making sure those needs are recognized and addressed by the ACBA.
Call for Donations
The Attorneys in Public Service Committee will be collecting donations at the Law Day Run for the College and Room Essentials (C.A.R.E.) Initiative – a program administered by the Capital Region nonprofit Mission Accomplished. C.A.R.E. provides college students in need with pre-assembled care packages that include school supplies, bedding, toiletries and other miscellaneous items. Mission Accomplished welcomes monetary donations or supplies. For more information, visit http://matransitionservices.org/donors/ or stop by the APS table at the race.
This year the Attorneys in Public Service Committee (APS) will continue the Awards for Attorneys in Public Service, recognizing two individuals who have shown great commitment to, and performance in, public service. They will present the Commitment to Excellence Award (for attorneys that have dedicated more than 10 years in public service) and the Trailblazer Award (for attorneys that have dedicated 10 or fewer years in public service) on June 15. View the event page.
Be sure to look for the newsletter piece written by different APS members each month.
