2019 NCBF Midyear Meeting

January 24-26, 2019 • Caesars Palace • Las Vegas, Nevada

Leadership

Running a bar foundation is no easy task. Yet it can be one of the most rewarding aspects of the legal profession. Lawyers give back to their communities with pride knowing that their efforts are making a real difference.

The National Conference of Bar Foundations is where we can all come together to share information, tips and guidance to help us make the most of the talent we find throughout the legal community. To be effective, it takes the right kind of leadership.

President's Message

Andrea Stone's NCBF President's Letter

Greetings!

Welcome to our new membership website. Please take time to login and take advantage of your member benefits. If you are not a member, I encourage you to join and be involved.

On a personal note, I can share with you one bonus of being an NCBF member. It’s hard to believe that a year has come and gone post Harvey. To say that Harvey flooded our world in Texas is an understatement. The devastation that the storm brought to our state was unimaginable. The Texas Bar Foundation responded quickly to create a link on our website to accept donations restricted to Harvey relief efforts. I was humbled and amazed as we recorded gifts from across the country. And then I began receiving calls from our NCBF friends wanting to do what we do best…help each other. Many bar foundations, large and small, collected donations on our behalf and added more than $33,000 to our Harvey fund. We put those dollars to work immediately and we can never thank you enough.

Now our friends in North Carolina are responding to Florence. Please go to our member spotlight to read about their current plight. It seems there is no end to the unexpected natural disasters and emergencies we must respond to in addition to our everyday needs.

NCBF allows us the opportunity to share our ideas, experiences, what works and what we might suggest be done differently as we constantly face new demands and challenges. We rely on the support of one another.

I encourage you to Join now and take advantage of the benefits of educational programming, shared resources and best practices, as well as the hidden gem of networking and making new friends.

I look forward to an exciting year within NCBF!
