President’s Message

Frank SommarioBy Frank A. Sommario

I am both honored and humbled to be the 2016-17 President of the Justinian Society of Lawyers.  I would like to thank everyone who attended the Installation Dinner Meeting on May 18, 2016 at Gibson’s in Chicago.

Knowing all of the great leaders that have had held this position over the years before me, I know that I have some big shoes to fill but I am confident that, with the help of my fellow officers, WE can guide and lead this great organization to the best of our abilities.

My goals for the year will be to continue to increase our membership, maintain fiscal responsibility, and find ways to offer more benefits to our members.

In keeping with the tradition of having a theme for my presidential year, the theme for my year will be “Generosity and Humility”.  I will explain more about that at the upcoming Annual Installation and Awards Dinner at the Palmer House on September 15, 2016, which I invite all of you to attend.  I want to specially thank Judge Gloria Goco for her help in planning that event.

I want to mention that I look forward to working with my fellow Officers and Executive Committee Members, and I also want to specially thank our Executive Director, Nina Vidmer for everything she does for this organization.

Thank you.

Frank A. Sommario
President 2016-17
