New Bar President and Members of the Board is a succinct yet comprehensive guide to bar leadership. It covers topics of both internal importance--such as governance and sound financial management--to the bar's relations with its members, the public and the news media. It is the only handbook of its kind geared specifically to bar associations and bar leaders.
Bulk prices are available for orders over five copies. To order in bulk, contact the ABA Service Center at 800/285-2221.
The ABA Division for Bar Services organizes its activities under four objectives: to serve as the primary communications link between the ABA and other bar associations; to provide staff support and/or liaison for key bar-related organizations; to provide education, training and management support services for bar leaders; and to serve as coordinating agency for ABA services to bar associations.
Among the activities and programs which it supports are:
Staff support to the National Association of Bar Executives, National Conference of Bar Presidents, and the National Conference of Bar Foundations.
In addition, the Division serves internally as the ABA's coordinating entity for communication with bar associations, and acts in an advisory capacity with any bar association requesting consultative services.
The Division continually seeks to improve its efforts to better serve the needs of state and local bar associations, to identify national trends and inform bar leaders of developments in issues of importance to the legal profession.
