Courtney A. Munnings, an associate in the Trial and Dispute Resolution Practice Group with Pepper Hamilton, began her term as vice president of administration of the Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia this month.
Established in 1950, the Barristers’ Association addresses the professional needs and development of Black lawyers in the City of Philadelphia through programs such as seminars, cultural events and publications. The organization — whose membership encompasses a network of approximately 1,000 lawyers and jurists — also provides a forum for discussion and dissemination of information of matters of particular interest to Black attorneys and the Philadelphia Black community at large.
As vice president of administration, Ms. Munnings will serve as a member of the Barristers’ Association’s executive board, which is responsible for the operation of the organization. The board is composed of elected officers and appointed members.
The 69th Annual Installation of Executive and Advisory Board Members was held on September 11 at City Hall, where Ms. Munnings was officially installed as a member of the 2019-2020 executive board.
