Trying to Reach the Legal Market?

Team up with the National Conference of Bar Presidents!

If you are interested in connecting with the legal market, consider sponsoring the National Conference of Bar Presidents (NCBP). Sponsoring NCBP gives you access to key decision makers of the major bar associations. The leaders, in turn, represent a combined bar association membership of 1.3 million lawyers. Besides leading bar organizations, these attorneys are also leaders within law firms and corporations, serving as Managing Partners, Managing Directors, Shareholders, Principals, General Counsel and Of Counsel.

Diversity Sponsorships

The goal of the NCBP Diversity & Inclusion Committee is to strengthen the alliance between associations of all kinds where information is shared and cooperation is enhanced to the benefit of the organized bar, the profession, and society as a whole. Understanding that some bars may not have budgeted for participation in an NCBP Annual or Midyear Meeting, the NCBP Executive Council has established Diversity Scholarships, for the Annual and Midyear Meetings, in order to reach out to a broader range of bar leaders, including leaders of associations for lawyers of color, women attorneys, LGBT attorneys, lawyers with physical challenges, as well as smaller county bar associations. Diversity Sponsorships have been established to help underwrite the scholarship program.
