MOTION FOR KIDS - OUR PREMIER COMMUNITY SERVICE EVENT...
YOU can support this year's Motion for Kids through a sponsorship donation or by attending our annual Trivia Night on October 17. Both help us fund this holiday party for over 3,000 kids in December. We'll be posting info on how you can "sponsor a kid" in the coming weeks. Thanks for all you do for the "kids."
New Strategic Plan will guide BAMSL into the future…
A five-year strategic plan was approved by the Board of Governors at their October 22, 2014 meeting. The plan, which focuses on five areas – Membership, Continuing Legal Education, Communications, Governance, and Advocacy – was spearheaded by President-Elect Seth Albin working with other Board Members and Executive Director Zoe W. Linza.
The Plan takes into account the need to maintain and grow membership levels, and to enrich the image of attorneys with the public by creating high standards and providing excellent educational opportunities. You can review a PDF copy of the 2015 Strategic Plan, which will be enforce through 2020, by clicking HERE.

A special Town Hall Meeting for all interested members will be held on November 19, 2014 at 12:00 noon as part of the regularly-scheduled Board of Governor’s Meeting in the Bar Center Classroom to open discussion about the possible transition to a nominating committee as part of the process in the election of the BAMSL Board. The Diversity Task Force, appointed by President Joseph A. Frank earlier this bar year, has developed a recommendation and the Town Hall meeting will give BAMSL members the opportunity to weigh in on the proposal.
