Our Very Own TORRES on the PRBA's Board

Congrats to our Founding Partner, Torres, for becoming part of the PRBA's Executive Board!

The PRBA, at the New York City Civil Court at 111 Centre Street, elected the Puerto Rican Bar Association's Officers and Directors for the 2013-2014 term. Together with current Board Members --  Catherine Torres, Neysa Alsina, Nilda Rivera, Frank Torres and Carmen Torrent -- will continue this past Board’s devotion to the PRBA and its mission through our hard work and commitment to you.

As highlighted by new President-Elect, Elba Galvan, she will work closely with our new President, Javier Vargas, in following in the steps of those who came before by acknowledging the challenges ahead  and accepting responsibility to reach out to more of our Latino colleagues throughout the state with a clear agenda for growth. The PRBA will work closer with other minority bar associations, will continue to work to obtain a permanent home for the PRBA and its members and our scholarship endowment. In addition, there will be new efforts to reach out to our youth by making a stronger commitment to current and future law students.

Please join me in congratulating them and to ensure the PRBA’s bright future!
