For a Bar President, good resources are indispensable.   NCBP is dedicated to Bar Leader Success and this Resources Page is designed with that goal in mind.  Our hope is that the resources below* will provide you with substantive content and creative ideas from articles and past programs, as well as links for relevant material we think you will find most helpful.  Some items do not lose value regardless of age, and for that reason, we have included an archive for each category and we welcome you to peruse that as well.  



We know the COVID-19 pandemic is creating a lot of crisis within the legal community and among bars. Click here to see all of the resources available to bar leaders to help themselves, their bar, the profession, the community and the judicial system. If you have a resource you'd like to share regarding the COVID-19 issue, please submit it below.
