“I am honored to be selected to lead the Women’s Bar Association, and humbled to follow the many impressive and trailblazing women who have led the organization with dignity, thoughtfulness, and passion,” said Ms. Montani. “It is particularly meaningful to me to serve during the centennial celebration of the passage of the 19th Amendment.
