NCBP wrapped up another Annual Meeting last week, and this one was a real game changer. From a kick-off on Thursday afternoon with U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein, to a closing Saturday morning discussion on changing the game in access to justice; including a Friday morning plenary on leadership, innovation and collaboration, a Friday afternoon plenary with civil rights leader Fred Gray; and 10 workshop in between, NCBP Annual Meeting attendees had plenty of opportunities to learn, network and share bar leadership ideas to change the game at their bar. See program session handouts here; see photos from the meeting here. Have photos from the meeting to share? Send them to Teresa Peavy. And, if you attended, be sure to fill out an evaluation (if you haven't already done so) so NCBP can continue to provide game changing programming!
