New series invites members to Ask the Bar about issues, benefits, advocacy
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 12, 2016
The New Jersey State Bar Association this fall will launch a program to share information about how it works.
The Ask the Bar Series will offer an easy, interactive way for members to find out what the association is doing for members and the profession. It will also invite members to ask the questions that matter to them.
Ask the Bar will be held at noon on the first Tuesday of every month. Members can call in to: 732-964-1991, next use conference room 671020, and finally enter user pin 2017.
The first session will be a talk-back with NJSBA President Thomas H. Prol. He will offer insights about his goals as president and what’s happening this fall. It will be held Sept. 6, starting at noon.
The series is in response to a survey of members the association conducted this spring that showed members want to be able to easily interact with the association and learn more about how it works.
"One of our top priorities at the NJSBA is to stand up and speak out for our members, their practices and their clients. We work hard every day to serve the members as the voice of the profession. We proudly offer the networking, education and advocacy our members need to improve themselves and be the best attorneys they can be,” Prol said. “We look forward to launching this cutting-edge connectivity for our members, and we hope to learn from the questions you ask as we seek to continually improve your state bar."
