Massachusetts Bar Association President Edward W. McIntyre ceremoniously passed the gavel to Valerie A. Yarashus at the May 21 House of Delegates meeting at MassMutual Center in Springfield. Yarashus, the current President-elect, will succeed to president on Sept. 1 for the 2009-2010 association year. McIntyre presented Yarashus with a copy of The Joy of Living after calling her a true leader who is a gifted listener with the ability to develop reciprocal relationships. “She is a wonderful human being and an accomplished lawyer,” McIntyre said. “She’s a glowing example for all of us in the legal community.” Said Yarashus of McIntyre, “We are so grateful to have had you as a president. You are a kind, generous, wise person.”
