You know those hallway discussions that take place at meetings—the impromptu chats that are sometimes more “real” than anything that was brought up during Q&A? In recent years, Twitter has become the ultimate electronic hallway.
At the 2016 Midyear Meeting of the National Conference of Bar Presidents, National Association of Bar Executives, and National Conference of Bar Foundations, for example, attendees made heavy use of the hashtags #NABEmidyr16 and #NCBP.
A quick scroll through some of those tweets is a great way to get a glimpse of what happened at the meeting and what attendees thought some of the best takeaways were.
We could not include every tweet or every program. To get the full gist—and all the great photos of sailboats, palm trees, and camaraderie—please check out those hashtags. Also, be sure to consult the handouts, which are listed and linked below, to understand the full scope of each program being tweeted about.
It appears that the NCBF meeting didn’t have its own hashtag, but that doesn’t mean its programming was any less interesting than for the other groups; in fact, information on building an effective board, engaging the next generation of leaders, and the power of storytelling may be relevant even if you’re not “on the foundation side.” You can access all the NCBF handouts here.
This article is unusual in that each link will lead you not to a website, but to the Twitter feed of the person or organization in question. If you are new to Twitter, now you have some new ideas for whom to follow—and please be sure to follow Bar Leader, too.
