What is the Joint Exhibit Program?
Each bar year, the Diversity and Inclusion Center actively markets the American Bar Association to thousands of diverse lawyers, judges, and law students attending the various National Affinity Bar Association Conferences. By participating in the program, ABA Sections, Divisions, Forums and other entities are provided with a unique opportunity to directly engage and have their entities’ value proposition shared with this critical audience and potential members.
In specific, the Diversity and Inclusion Center secures and staffs an ABA exhibit table that displays ABA and entity marketing collateral and giveaways at the annual conferences for the Hispanic National Bar Association; National Asian Pacific American Bar Association; National Native American Bar Association; and National Bar Association. This year, we are exploring expanding the program to also exhibit at the annual conferences for the National Association of Women Lawyers and National LGBT Bar.
How can my entity participate?
- First step is to click on the following link to access and complete the online sign-up form. The cost per bar year is $850—significantly less than the cost for an individual ABA entity to exhibit at the National Affinity Bar Association Conferences.
- Second step is to drop off/ship up to 100 copies of your entity’s marketing collateral (e.g. brochures etc. that we are free to distribute throughout the bar year); up to 40 copies of any seasonal materials (e.g. magazines, meeting advertisements etc.); and any “swag” or “giveaways” to office #17030 in the Chicago Office.
