To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend congratulations to Savannah attorney Robert E. James II of Carver State Bank on his election as chair of the National Bankers Association, a Washington, D.C.-based organization that represents minority-owned banks within the U.S.
In addition to his banking activities, Mr. James is a public finance attorney with the firm of Golden Holley James LLP in Savannah and is a 25-year active member of the State Bar of Georgia. He earned his law degree in 1995 from Harvard University, where he received the Earl Warren Legal Training Scholarship and was elected president of the Harvard Black Law Students Association.
By accepting this position, Mr. James demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the community. We wish him well in this new capacity of professional leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
