Meredith Completes Two Consecutive One-Year Terms as President of the Network of Bar Leaders
Meredith was honored to serve as President of the Network of Bar Leaders for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 terms. The Network of Bar Leaders is a coalition of over 60 member bar associations dedicated to bringing together the leadership of the diverse bar associations of the greater New York Metropolitan area. Formed over 25 years ago, Network provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas and serves as a vehicle for joint action on issues of mutual concern and pending legislation. The Network of Bar Leaders is the legal community’s most diverse institution. It includes each of the five county bar associations, numerous citywide and statewide specialty groups, specialty bar associations dedicated to every field of practice, as well as ethnic and religious bar associations. Because of its great diversity, the organization is often called upon to express a consensus opinion on behalf of the organized bars in matters affecting the legal community as a whole.
While it was a challenging time to serve, it was also immensely rewarding. Under Meredith's leadership, the Network focused on diversity initiatives and supporting member bar associations through the pandemic.
Meredith will continue to serve on the executive council of the Network.

The oath was administered by the Honorable George B. Daniels of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. It was the first in-person event for the Network since January 2020.
