At its re­cent monthly meet­ing, the New­ton County Bar As­so­ci­a­tion elected the fol­low­ing of­fi­cers: Michael Geoffroy of LaMalva, Geoffroy & Oe­land, pres­i­dent; Randy McGin­ley of the Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s of­fice, pres­i­dent-elect; Frank Turner Jr. of Greer, Stans­field and Turner, trea­surer (re-elected); and Maria Banjo of the Pub­lic Defender’s of­fice, sec­re­tary.

Beau Wor­thing­ton con­cluded his term as pres­i­dent. Geoffroy said of Wor­thing­ton, “Beau did a great job of in­creas­ing mem­ber­ship and work­ing for the com­mu­nity. Both he and Shan­non Sneed did so much to help with the High School Mock Trial com­pe­ti­tion, in which all three of New­ton’s high schools com­pete.”

The meet­ing’s speak­ers, Court of Ap­peals Judges Lisa Branch and Carla Mc- Millian, dis­cussed prac­ti­cal rec­om­men­da­tions for ap­peal­ing cases be­fore their Court as well as their over­all philoso­phies about the im­por­tance of an ac­ces­si­ble bench. The next meet­ing of the New­ton County Bar As­so­ci­a­tion will be a re­cep­tion, from 5-7 p.m. Aug. 21, at Amici to honor Jus­tice Hugh Thomp­son. A for­mer New­ton County at­tor­ney, Jus­tice Thomp­son is soon to be sworn in as the Chief Jus­tice of the Ge­or­gia Supreme Court.
