The San Fernando Valley Bar Association’s long-time Executive Director Elizabeth Post is stepping down from her position on October 6, 2018, after almost 25 years at the helm of the 2,000+ member nonprofit organization.
Post took over the bar association in February 1994 as the San Fernando Valley was recovering from the Northridge Earthquake. A New York native, Post and her family will return to the East Coast, where she has accepted the position of the Executive Director of the Nassau County Bar Association, headquartered in Mineola, New York.
“I am thrilled for this new career opportunity and to move closer to our families, but I am deeply saddened to leave all the members, judges and Bar Leaders who I have worked with for a quarter of a century and literally grown up with,” says Post. “We have accomplished a lot over the past 25 years: growing from 800 to more than 2,000 members; adding the Mandatory Fee Arbitration Program and Blanket the Homeless; creating an award-winning magazine, Valley Lawyer, and website; and most recently, forming our own professional networking group, Valley Bar Network.”
“During her long tenure, Liz expertly managed our bar association, navigated the many challenges affecting the legal profession and the Valley community, and helped build what I consider to be one of the best local bar associations in the country,” says SFVBA President Alan Kassan.
Kassan has formed a Search Committee to find Post’s replacement. Individuals interested in applying for SFVBA Executive Director should forward their resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. A detailed job description for the position can be found on the SFVBA website.
