No beignets? No way!
Not “no beignets,” but “beignets later.” Like all of you, we understand the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the related assortment of health guidelines, personal circumstances, program budgets, and travel plans. Each of our communities, just like yours, has been touched in some way – either directly or indirectly – and we want to give you one less concern. The 2020 ABA National Lawyer Referral Workshop will go on, but in an alternate, virtual format. You can look forward to engaging with topics of concern to local and state lawyer referral programs and anticipate some fun networking opportunities along the way. This year, we’ll be separated by distance, but united in our goals of serving our communities’ legal needs and advancing access to justice. At the same time, we have already confirmed that the next workshop will be held in New Orleans on October 6-9, 2021. So, mark your calendars for October 2020 and October 2021, and next year … beignets!
