In this dialogue, these women leaders will address how their bar associations are responding to the needs of their members and smaller affiliate chapters, creative ways to elevate and engage members, and what they see as the biggest challenges and opportunities on the horizon in meeting member needs, and how they are meeting those challenges and opportunities.
