What NCBP Does...
NCBP hosts bi-annual conferences of state and local bar presidents that are held in conjunction with ABA Midyear and Annual meetings. These conferences feature joint programming with the National Association of Bar Executives and the National Conference of Bar Foundations, organizations whose meetings also take place during ABA meetings. NCBP also works closely with its affiliate, the Metropolitan Bar Caucus, a voluntary organization of metropolitan bar leaders and executive directors. See Purpose.
