Membership in the NCWBA Empowers Your Women’s Bar Association Through Networking, Referral and Information-Sharing Opportunities As an affiliate of the American Bar Association, we represent the voice of organized women’s bar associations through our delegate to the ABA House of Delegates, our liaison to the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession, as well as through co-sponsorships and collaborative projects with other organizations. In-person networking opportunities such as our annual Women’s Bar Leadership Summit, let participants learn about leading trends facing women lawyers and share ideas directly with their peers. Our e-newsletter and social media allow us to stay in touch throughout the year. Our electronic e-mail lists enable those who wish to communicate directly with each other about referrals, job opportunities, upcoming events or anything important to the community of women lawyers. We offer the opportunity to meet one another virtually through quarterly membership meetings.
