Andrew Atkinson, Minard-Ames
The ABA is and continues to be an important part of my career. There’s tremendous value in spending time with our colleagues at the ongoing events, workshops, and of course, the annual convention. The ABA accomplishes meaningful work from a legislative standpoint, and is a very fun organization to be a part of. I’m proud to be an active and involved member of the ABA.
