Actively seeking to meet and engage more members of the bar outside of metro Atlanta, Dawn Jones joined a very large gathering of attorneys, judges, other elected officials, and guests for a very special evening in Albany. On March 16, 2017, Georgia Legal Services Program held a special event in honor of retired Georgia Court of Appeals Judge Herbert Phipps at the Merry Acres Restaurant.

Speakers on the program highlighted Judge Phipps’ trailblazing legal career, and Judge Phipps himself provided brief remarks at the end.  Endeavoring to extend her network of support, Dawn took full advantage of the opportunity to meet and talk to local members of the bar about her bid for Secretary of the State Bar of Georgia.  As usual, Dawn also addressed questions posed about the State Bar and explained to how attendees could get more involved at the State Bar level.
