“We have a fantastic executive board and we’re all looking forward to furthering the Savannah Bar Association’s distinguished tradition of service,” said Dickinson. “Together, we will honor the legacy of the Savannah Bar Association’s efforts in both the practice of law and in the community, while also looking to the future and examining ways in which we can achieve even more.”

The officers will oversee more than 430 members of the professional organization of local attorneys and will continue pro-bono activities and projects to benefit the community at large.
