This month, the Columbus Bar Association (CBA) announced Amanda Strausbaugh’s appointment as co-chair to the Young Lawyers Committee, effective July 1, 2021. In her position, Amanda will help to design activities and programs to assist new lawyers in building successful, rewarding professional lives. The committee helps young attorneys acquire all the tools needed to build a successful career; from the substantive knowledge and business sense expected of today’s attorney to the sprawling networks, strong friendships, and balanced perspectives that make professional growth both possible and rewarding.
“The CBA is a great organization and I’ve made and strengthened friendships through the Young Lawyers Committee,” says Amanda Strausbaugh, Attorney at Carlile Patchen & Murphy LLP. “I am honored to have the opportunity to give back to an organization that has done so much to make me a better person and a better lawyer.”
