After eight years on the HNBA Board (including four years on the Executive Committee), Sean Andrade has decided to run for National President. Since 2003, he has been a strong advocate for MABA and southern California on the national board. In 2008, he brought the HNBA National Convention back to LA (after more than 20 years) with MABA as the affiliate host. “HNBA Goes To Hollywood” remains the best attended and most profitable Convention ever. Nationally, Sean revitalized the HNBA brand by leading the logo change and turning Noticias into the high quality newsletter it is today. As VP of Programs, he forged a strategic partnership with Kids In Need of Defense (KIND) and created the first ever Community Mock Trial Program. As HNBA President, he will be committed to increasing national visibility, strengthening the pipeline, demonstrating leadership on diversity, and focusing on professional development. We all hope we can count on your personal support and vote for Sean Andrade, current MABA Board member.
