Region V Information

HNBA’s Region V comprises the States of Maryland and West Virginia, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the District of Columbia.  Region V is fortunate to have three active and major affiliates, with whom the HNBA has worked on increasing collaboration: the Hispanic Bar Association of VA (HBA-VA), the Maryland Hispanic Bar Association (MHBA), and the Hispanic Bar Association of the District of Columbia (HBA-DC).  For the first time, HNBA sponsored holiday gatherings in DC, MD and VA.  HNBA also continued to co-sponsor various professional development events with HBA-DC.  In addition, HNBA created a Region V Bulletin informing members about the various region activities being held by HNBA and our affiliates.

In 2012, Region V has planned CLEs to be held in conjunction with affiliates and will be working with the HNBA Latina Commission in organizing an event for Latinas.  Additionally, in accordance with President Benny Agosto’s directive,  Region V will be awarding scholarships to six students from law schools in the area.  We will also continue our active role in the endorsement process for judicial vacancies.

HNBA Region V will have a busy year and would love your assistance and support.  If you are interested in getting involved or if you have any questions, please contact Regional President Juan M. Sempertegui at
