Forums are for NABE members interested in the exchange of information, breaking news, ideas and expertise about bar associations and what we do.

NABE forums need you. We know you’ve got something to say or something to share that can help other members be the best at what they do.  (Or be the first to hear it!)

If you are continually looking for ideas that are fresh and engaging and that adds value for your members, then a forum is the perfect vehicle.

Participation in forums is free for NABE members. Find out how to participate. Also see NABE Listservs.

Our Forums

Bar Member Services

The purpose of this forum is for NABE members, regardless of position or association size, to share and exchange ideas and learn more about providing a variety of services to their members.

This forum provides an opportunity for those who want to learn more about what types of services other bar associations provide to members, including the cost of those services, staffing issues, and what works and what doesn’t.
