About the Program

Join Bar leaders from across the country to hear about programs you can implement in your leadership year—from pro bono and diversity projects, to ways to move programming online in the COVID-19 era—this program showcases a double feature. 

Attendees will hear from outgoing bar chairs and presidents on what was successful in their year and things they wish they could have improved on. 

Finally, in the second hour, attendees will hear presentations from 10 bar associations in the areas of advocacy, programming, pro bono, diversity, and leadership. 

This is a must attend program for everyone on your leadership team.
