A Message from the President

Thanks for browsing our National Conference of Bar Presidents' (NCBP) website. This is the only organization devoted exclusively to supporting the top officers of state, local, and other bar associations. I have been a member of this organization since 2005, the year when I became president-elect of the State Bar of Nevada. Our hope is that the NCBP programming, featuring national leaders from bar associations around the country as well as experts in association management and planning, will be useful, current and relevant to the challenges that you are facing in your bar.
