Smile ... I said SMILE!

Recently, I told you about a new tradition that the State Bar of Arizona has launched: the staff photo.

Sure, we already have an inside-the-group online headshot of everyone. That is helpful if you cannot recall who Buddy in Accounting is, or whether Trent in Lawyer Discipline is the bald one or the balder one.

But we’ve never had a full-blown all-staff, stand-up-and-look-Bar-ish photo.

Until now.

Here is the official 2011 staff shot of the State Bar of Arizona (click for a larger image). As people come and go, there may be Kremlin-esque airbrushing of the dearly departed. But until then, here we are, standing up and serving (when we’re not being posers). I’m the one with the glasses.
