Get Involved!

Make a contribution to the work of the NCBP by participating on a standing committee. Christine Hickey (who becomes NCBP president on August 12, 2017) will make appointments to the following committees for the 2017-18 year:

21st Century Lawyers Committee – The 21st Century Lawyer Committee plans and promotes live programs to connect with NCBP members between annual and midyear meetings via Adobe Connect virtual sessions. This is an exciting committee for those interested in cutting edge and creative ways to connect leaders across the country on topics relevant to NCBP members.

Communications – The Communications Committee generates communications about NCBP activities and services, and provides other information that will enhance members’ roles as leaders of their organizations. The committee has oversight for the electronic newsletter, NCBP BAR PRESIDENT, as well as the NCBP website, www.ncbp.org. If you have a passion for social media and electronic content, then this is the committee for you!

Diversity & Inclusion – The Diversity & Inclusion Committee implements strategies in support of NCBP’s goals of setting an example of diversity and inclusion in its leadership, programs, and activities. The committee engages in activities which develop membership and active participation in NCBP by bar leaders representing associations for lawyers of color, women lawyers, LGBT lawyers, and lawyers with physical challenges. This committee is responsible for the diversity scholarship program and planning a diversity forum held at midyear and annual meetings.

Finance & Investment – Chaired by the NCBP treasurer, the Finance and Investment Committee oversees staff management of organizational funds; makes recommendations to the Executive Council regarding the development of budgets, financial policy, and NCBP investments; and coordinates communications with NCBP’s investment adviser.  If you’ve got a knack for numbers, then this committee is a perfect fit!

Membership - The Membership Committee is responsible for promoting, enhancing, and expanding membership in NCBP, including oversight of annual membership drives, making recommendations regarding development and promotion of programs and services of interest to members, and conducting outreach to existing and prospective NCBP members. The committee hosts first-time attendee events at annual and midyear meetings.

Program – The Program Committee is charged with planning and promoting NCBP programs including workshops, plenaries and other events for the NCBP annual and midyear meetings. This is an active and exciting committee that meets in person and through virtual meetings to select program topics and speakers of interest to NCBP members. 

Sponsorship – The Sponsorship Committee is responsible for creating and maintaining relationships with current and prospective NCBP sponsors. This committee is entrusted with managing and enhancing valued partnerships and is perfect for those who have a talent for relationship-building and who enjoy making new connections.    

Appointees are expected to attend committee meetings held in conjunction with the 2018 midyear meeting in Vancouver, BC (Thursday, February 1) and the 2018 annual meeting in Chicago, IL (Thursday, August 2), as well as conference calls or virtual meetings held throughout the year.
