Bar Association

March 17, 2020

To Our Valued Members:

As President of the Nassau County Bar Association, first and foremost, I extend my wishes for good health and safety to all NCBA members and your families during this difficult period.

Following the guidance of the U.S. Center for Disease Control and recommendations from New York State and Nassau County authorities, we are making adjustments that will impact member services and events in the upcoming weeks. Our number one priority is the health of our Bar staff, Members and the public. Therefore, effective immediately, the NCBA is closed to outside visitors. Academy programs, Committee meetings and events scheduled through April 1 have been postponed while we continue to monitor and reassess the situation. We will make changes as needed as developments occur.

Furthermore, beginning Wednesday, March 18, Bar staff will transition to a remote-work environment. Rest assured the NCBA is committed to continuing to serve our Members and the public during these difficult times. Staff will do its best to respond to phone calls and emails in a timely manner. (Emails and telephone extensions can be found on the online Staff Directory .)

Keeping our Members informed is a top priority. The latest information from the Court and the Bar concerning the Coronavirus pandemic are available on the NCBA website and this page will continue to be updated. You can also follow our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram ; we will post updates there as well.

Later this week the Nassau Academy of Law will unveil its CLE on Demand for Members to obtain their CLE credits from the convenience of their work and homes. Nassau Academy of Law CLE seminars available on CDs and DVDs will be now be offered to stream online.

Lastly, NCBA Committees will have the opportunity to meet virtually through conference calls and online. We will continue to send updates to all committee members.

This is a time for us all to pull together to get through this in the best way possible. I wish the very best to the Long Island community and all our many friends across the nation and around the globe. We are all in this together.

Best regards,
Richard D. Collins
NCBA President
