Three unexpected elements of the 2023 Annual Meeting

Both first and long-time participants of the Annual Meeting of The Missouri Bar will have exciting new elements to look forward to at this year’s conference. 

Throughout the event, which runs Sept. 13-15, the Lawyers Impacting Community Project will be collecting school supply donations for KC’s Operation Breakthrough. School supplies will support educational programs for children in poverty with the goal of collecting enough supplies for 50 new Preschool Literacy Kits. Read more about Operation Breakthrough here. 

From 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday in the Liberty Foyer, lawyers and judges will be able to have their headshot taken professionally by David Selby of Selby Films. Carving out time and finding resources to take a headshot can often fall to the bottom of one’s priority list. Annual Meeting’s free professional headshot service, sponsored by the Young Lawyers’ Section, provides built-in time for lawyers and judges to update their online public presence. Take benefit from this service and feel confident in sharing your updated, high-quality headshot for years to come.  

Friday morning from 8:30 to 11 a.m., attendees will have time to paws and destress with puppy playtime outside of the Century Ballroom Foyer. Playing with animals is a proven way to decrease stress, and the taxing nature of the legal profession heightens the importance of self-care through well-being strategies. 

Take advantage of these new and exciting elements at #MoBarMEET23 while still enjoying all the tried-and-true aspects of the annual conference. See you next week!
