NABE Seeks Consultants for Management of Priorities

This January, the NABE Board of Directors adopted a comprehensive set of recommendations from the NABE Programs and Services Taskforce. The Taskforce was asked to assess how current NABE programs and services address the needs of NABE bar professionals, identify gaps and make recommendations for changes as Past President Robert Craghead announced in April NABE News. The Board has been working diligently to implement these recommendations and realizes that it needs some additional help to move these ideas and issues forward. As such, the Board prepared a Request for Proposals (RFP) and is seeking consultants or bar associations to assist with all or part of these tasks. In addition, we are also seeking a bar association or consultant who can assist with our social media and website needs. Please note that nothing in this RFP changes our current relationship with the ABA’s Division of Bar Services which provides staffing and other services for NABE.

If your bar association is interested in responding to all or part of the RFP, please feel free to contact Julie Armstrong ( or Ellen Miller-Sharp ( with any questions by August 15. All RFP responses are due September 1, 2018.
