Comments from the Chair

By Stephen A. Steinberg

Seems like just a few months ago we were all in Austin, and yet we're well underway in our planning for New Orleans!  From the fantastic rooftop pool at the NOPSI Hotel, to exciting nightlife, and of course...beignets, we are looking forward to hosting both newcomers and old friends.  Make sure you have marked your calendars for October 14 - 17th, and make sure you click here for information on our RFP for educational sessions as well as for exhibitors.  As one of our first committed speakers has stated…SYINO!    

As many of you know, ABA Bar Services will be presenting its Bar Leadership Institute ("BLI") March 11 - 13, 2020 in Chicago.  BLI provides presidents-elect and other officers on the presidential track with techniques and skills essential to bar leadership.  Like last year, staff counsel will be participating in the Leadership Exchange on Friday, March 13th.  Please feel free to stop by to speak with Briana Morris regarding your lawyer referral questions, including PAR requests.

At the end of the day, the Committee is here to serve and support the national lawyer referral community.  We’re proud to be a resource to all of you, and even prouder of the work that all of you do on a day to day basis.  Feel free to reach out, and we look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
