From technology to governance, our panel of experienced bar execs will share their perspectives on the future of bar associations and what we can do now to be prepared down the road (the road full of self-driving cars, that is).

Presenter: Tim Eigo, Editor, State Bar of Arizona

Purchase Session -$15 >>
*View/Download the PowerPoint >>

Contact Speaker >>

Tim Eigo is busy thinking about how even this can become a blog post. But with the rest of his day, he is the editor of Arizona Attorney, an award-winning monthly publication of the State Bar of Arizona that covers legal news, trends and profiles. He also manages and writes much of the Bar’s social-media content, via Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and Tumblr. His blog (http://azatty.wordpress.com/) is a 5-day-a-week endeavor, something he does not entirely recommend. Before that, he edited and wrote at a variety of publications, including the Orange County (Calif.) Business Journal. He was an English major (B.A. Siena College, M.A. University of Notre Dame), and went to law school at the University of California–Hastings College of Law. He then practiced law in Southern California. Today, he writes, edits and in his time off helps make downtown Phoenix a more vibrant, world-class city. More...
