What an impressive turnout for our sold out 22nd Annual AAABA Banquet! On behalf of the Arizona Asian American Bar Association, I want to first thank our membership. AAABA’s greatest strength are the individual members through the years that have made this organization what it is today. Thank you for coming to our events throughout the year, and for all your support at the banquet. Secondly, I want to thank all our sponsors for their generous support to the Asian Bar. I want to thank the long time sponsors that have sustained and continue to support AAABA, and I want to welcome our new sponsors for their support! Another special thanks goes to our sister minority bar organizations. Together we are stronger!
