The Future Of CLEs: Paperless Materials
Most of you are aware that BAMSL's CLEs have gone virtual for the time-being. Going forward, we wanted to make everyone aware that materials for CLEs also will go paperless, following the new practice of providing materials via email that started when the local and state stay-at-home orders were implemented.
Going forward, all materials, certificates of attendance and evaluation forms will be emailed directly to attendees. However, for anyone who still wishes to receive hard copy documents for in-person CLEs, they will be provided for a nominal fee.
For all future CLEs, attendees will have the option when registering to opt for either paperless or the fee-based printed materials.
BAMSL members continue to have opportunities via the St. Louis Attorneys Against Hunger Committee to provide the ongoing need for food and funding to help feed area schoolchildren and their families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. There also are opportunities to volunteer your time – the organizations are providing masks and gloves for your safety. Let's keep the momentum going.
Corporate Counsel Institute (CCI) 2020 Will Go On, As A Virtual Series

READ ALL ABOUT IT: BAMSL Steps Up And Responds During COVID-19
During the local and state government stay-at-home orders, the BAMSL leadership and staff stepped up to assist the region's legal profession as well as the community at large in various ways. Once we compiled everything that was and continues to go on at BAMSL, even we were amazed at how much can be accomplished when leadership, members and staff collaborate, particularly during a crisis.
In case you missed all of the great initiatives that BAMSL started and the many programs we continue, we encourage you to check out the compilation of offerings and programming here.
Additionally, we encourage you to continually check out www.bamsl.org for information about your member benefits, upcoming events and CLEs, pro bono and community service-oriented initiatives, and the latest news.
