On behalf of the Executive Council, welcome to the 2019-2020 year with
the Minoru Yasui American Inn of Court! We are pleased you choose to spend your time with us, and we are excited for the upcoming year!
Our namesake, Minoru Yasui, was a Japanese American with a lifetime of experience fighting against intolerance in the law. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Min spent most of his adult years challenging laws targeting Japanese Americans and immigrants.
This year the Inn will focus on mentoring and supporting our members within the Inn. In addition to our popular regular programs that include getting acquainted in September, our holiday program in December, our small group breakout meeting in January, and Beer and Trivia in the Spring, we are planning on engaging programming related to the support of Inn members, so each member has the ability to develop a deeper relationship with Inn members, colleagues, clients and others with whom members have contact. I invite you to take advantage of the Inn's mentoring program, led by Judge Brian Campbell and Judge Gordon Gallagher.
Our Inn has developed a strong history of Platinum status with the American Inns of Court Achieving Excellence program, and I am pleased to announce that once again, our Inn achieved that designation for the 2018-2019 year. We look forward to a year of programming that will continue that tradition, while offering our members opportunities for community with each other in a fun, educational, and collaborative environment.
I encourage everyone to engage fully with the Inn, as we have a terrific group of members who have diverse backgrounds and experiences from which each of us can learn and grow. I challenge each of you to strengthen our community by meeting someone new to the Inn – or simply new to you – at each meeting.
As always, if you have questions, comments, concerns, or news, please contact our Inn Administrator, Tammy Bailey, or me.
