Rosing, Esq. was elected the first President of the California Lawyers Association (CLA).  The California Lawyers Association is the new home of the Sections of the State Bar of California, as well as the California Young Lawyers Association (CYLA), effective January 1, 2018. In October of 2017, Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 36 into law, effectively separating some of the professional promotion activities of the State Bar of California into CLA, a private non-profit entity. The organization’s mission is to promote professional advancement of attorneys practicing in California. Heather Rosing is Chief Financial Officer and Shareholder of Klinedinst PC, a business law firm with five offices across the West Coast. She currently serves as the President of the California Bar Foundation, California’s largest scholarship resource for diverse law students and is highly active in the legal community. Ms. Rosing has also served as Vice President of the State Bar of California, and President of the San Diego County Bar Association.

Ms. Rosing has been a stalwart contributing participant to NAWJ programs in San Diego.  She helped plan NAWJ’s Success Inside & Out project at Las Colinas Women’s Facility, and participated in support of NAWJ’s 2017 Midyear Meeting. She is already a member of the 2018 annual conference planning committee.  She has been a great mentor for NAWJ’s Color of Justice and MentorJet program presentations for a number of years. Ms. Rosing is one of NAWJ’s greatest supporters. NAWJ is extremely proud of her accomplishments statewide.
