Local bar leaders participate in conference
The first NSBA Local Bar Leadership Conference was held in
Kearney January 17-19, with 23 attorneys participating,
representing 25 local bar associations. Nearly every district in
the state was represented at the conference by a local bar
president or president-elect.
According to NSBA President Bob Barlow, reaction to the
conference was overwhelmingly positive, with the general con-
sensus being that it should become an annual event. Included
on the program were segments on public relations, news media
relations, law-related education, prepaid legal services, conti-
nuing legal education and problems of local bar associations.
