NWSBA Updates


We are pleased to announce that the NWSBA Board of Governors is in the process of conducting a Five Year Strategic Plan.  We are working in conjunction with the ABA Division for Bar Services, who conducted the last survey in 2008.  The NWSBA Long Range Planning Committee has determined that a member survey is critical in evaluating where we currently stand and to anticipate our members’ and nonmembers’ needs in the future. The survey is scheduled to take place in May and your responses will be the foundation for the plan.  This is your time to tell us what you want out of your membership!   The long range planning process can only work if we have a sufficient number of responses. Help us make this process successful so that we can continue to make this one of the best bar associations in Illinois, which in turn will benefit our members and community.
