Social & Community Committee

The Social and Community Committee works to build a spirit of community among APABA Silicon Valley members and affiliates.  We strengthen the APA legal network by organizing social events that foster networking, raise involvement in the community, and generate more awareness of APABA Silicon Valley efforts.  Past activities include last year’s Bocce Ball tournament, members’ mixers, annual picnic, and our Christmas event. Keep an eye out for regular event updates on the homepage and under the Events tab. We encourage you to get involved and join us.
