NCBP Gets a New, Modern Look...

Dear NCBP Members,

The National Conference of Bar Presidents is making changes, and on behalf of the NCBP Executive Council and the NCBP Communications Committee, I am proud to announce the launch of a new, redesigned logo as part of an ongoing evolution of our association brand.

Since 1950, NCBP provided information and training to state and local bar association leaders and continues to build a community of members who are passionate about working in support of our profession. Our new logo, for many, will be the first introduction to who we are. The design is simple, yet versatile and is meant to express a feeling of community, connectivity, prestige and leadership. We believe that it reflects our position as the essential network for bar association leaders.

You will see the new logo and more components of our brand identity being implemented across all NCBP communication channels over the next few months. Many of these changes will be featured at our Annual Meeting in San Francisco this August as we transition to our new brand.

I look forward to seeing you in the City by the Bay and hope that you enjoy our new, modern look!


Lanny Lambert, NCBP President

Mentoring and Professionalism Still Matter

By: Lanny Lambert, NCBP President
I recently had the opportunity to visit our northern neighbors to provide a keynote address at the Federation of Ontario Law Associations (FOLA) 2016 Spring Plenary Conference on behalf of NCBP. Like NCBP, FOLA is an association that represents the interests of practicing lawyers and its committees deal with the many issues affecting the legal profession. I share with you my keynote address in which I discussed why mentoring and professionalism still matter in our profession. The practice of law is an honor and privilege, one that carries great responsibility to our clients, associates, partners and opposing counsel and society. As lawyers and leaders, we are part of something that is much greater than simply making a living...
