The annual Omaha Bar Association President’s Reception was held Tuesday, marking the up­coming transition to a new presi­dent and bar leadership.

OBA President Patrick Cooper welcomed incoming OBA President William Acosta-Trejo during brief remarks. Acosta-Trejo presented Cooper with a crystal gavel to thank him for his service to the organization.

Cooper discussed the values of the OBA that came out of a stra­tegic planning process, and he highlighted the importance of pro­moting a sense of community, col­legiality and mutual support in the Omaha legal profession.

“I have learned a lot from all of you, and I thank you all just con­tinuing to supporting the OBA,” Cooper said.

Acosta-Trejo said the OBA has continued to keep its head above water, but he said changes would be necessary for the organization.

“I look forward to trying to look toward where we could go,” Acosta-Trejo said.

The OBA also thanked its other outgoing leaders: Past-President Anne Marie O’Brien, Past-Treasurer Aaron Wegner, Secretary Kate McNamara and Executive Council members Sean Conway and Molly Steinkemper.

The incoming slate of leaders in­clude Acosta-Trejo, President-Elect Laurie Smith Camp, Treasurer-Elect Molly Steinkemper, Secretary Kamron Hasan and Executive Council members Dwyer Arce and Ann Miller.

The transition of leadership will take place July 1, Executive Director Dave Sommers said.
