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!

The countdown to the NCBF Annual Meeting is on! I hope you’ll be joining trustees and staff from bar foundations nationwide as we gather for two days of educational workshops and fun networking opportunities. It’s not too late to sign up for the NCBF Thursday dinner. We will dine with a San Fran flare at Alioto’s. Click here for more information—see you in San Francisco!

I am so excited to present this year’s LexisNexis Partnership for Success Award to the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Foundation in recognition of their outstanding 1217 Project. Friends from the Springfield Metro Bar Foundation will join us to share the details of this remarkable program during the Saturday morning programming.

It is especially meaningful to honor the work of all our bar foundations across the country through my involvement with NCBF. Bar foundations play a critical role in so many communities and represent the commitment of lawyers and judges to come together to provide significant charitable assistance to those in need. They often do this work quietly and behind the scenes, but the impact of this work resounds well beyond the legal profession, and we are grateful to all who undertake it every day.

We hope you’ll continue to be involved with the NCBF in the coming year. This year we have accomplished so much but we must continue to strive to do more!

Thank you for all that you do for your bar foundation and your community,

Andrea Stone Signature
