Greater New Britain Bar Association
The Greater New Britain Bar Association is a fraternal organization of judges, lawyers and support staff that practice in or around the New Britain Judicial District. Our purpose is to share ideas and support with those of us that have chosen the law as a profession and to benefit the community that surrounds our courthouse.
2014 - Message from Michael F. Romano, President
I want to wish everyone on a happy and prosperous New Year.
The GNBBA had a great 2013. All our events were successful thanks to the support of our members, our Judges, our court staff and our sponsors.
Your support allows the GNBBA to assist the many area charities and social programs that help those less fortunate. No one stands as tall as when they bend to lend a helping hand.
We are excited about 2014 - our Bench Bar Dinner, our Staff Appreciation Lunch, our Law Day Celebration, our Annual Aronson Cup Golf Tournament, our Brown Bag Lunch series and other planned events.
Stay tuned, stay with us and stay safe.
Michael F. Romano, President
Your support goes a long way to help others
