President's Message
Change and Resilience
By J. Timothy Nardell
As we turn the corner from Summer to Fall, I am turning the final corner of my year as MCBA president and I am becoming reflective about the year that has passed. This was certainly not the year that I anticipated. I don’t think it was a year that anyone expected. And, while our expectations for returning to “normality” are still somewhat mixed, it does seem to me that we have turned the corner from thinking about COVID-19 as a global pandemic to thinking about COVID-19 as an endemic condition, something that we are learning to live with.  More >
Got CLE? We've Got Plenty: Registration for MCBA's Annual MCLE Conference Is Open!
MCBA’s annual Bay Area MCLE Conference is coming up next month, with four outstanding keynote speakers and many great specialty programs. This year’s conference runs from November 16th to 18th and will provide 14 CLE credits if you attend all of the sessions, including ethics, elimination of bias, and competence. It’s a great deal for over half of your required credits, especially at the early-bird member price of $125 (expiring at the end of this month). This year’s conference will once again be an all-Zoom affair, making it as convenient as it can be to attend.  More >
The Annual Meeting of the Marin County Bar Association will take place on October 27, 2021. Our membership vote on next year's officers and directors will occur preceding the Court update.
