Join us for the 2020 Missouri Bar Leadership Institute
It’s back! After a successful first year, we’re once again hosting the Missouri Bar Leadership Institute, April 2-3, 2020. All local and specialty bar association leaders as well as aspiring bar leaders are invited to attend this two-day event in Jefferson City, where participants can further develop their leadership skills and connect with others in similar roles. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you’re thinking about attending.
What’s it like?
Lawyers are natural leaders. This conference, modeled with the American Bar Association’s leadership institution as inspiration, brings lawyer-leaders together in a space where they can collaborate and share current successes and challenges with one another. Attendees will also have a chance to learn how to best serve their groups thanks to plenaries and workshops presented by past bar leaders and industry experts.
Who will be there?
You, we hope! The 2020 programming also features a host of quality speakers and panelists, including Ray Williams, Keith and Dana Cutler, Crista Hogan and more. Plus, you’ll be able to network with them and others during meals and breaks.
What will I learn?
You’ll walk away with something new and useful to apply in your local or specialty bar. Planned sessions include conversations about time management; communication skills; effective delegation; building relationships; membership engagement; and other hot topics.
How much does it cost?
The Missouri Bar Leadership Institute was created to be reasonable and accessible to all bar leaders. The regular registration rate is $99, but attendees who signup by March 2, 2020, receive the $75 early bird pricing. A limited number of need-based scholarships will be available which will consist of a complimentary registration to MO BLI and $150 travel stipend. The application deadline has been extended to March 2.
