Agenda/Program

The CSE Retreat is a great opportunity for chief staff executives of bars of all sizes to gather in advance of the ABA Bar Leadership Institute to discuss personal development, human resource issues, and volunteer/management relationships.

 

 

As a change from last year’s conference, this year’s Retreat will be held as a collaborative event in conjunction with the Small Bar Conference. To kick-off the conferences, there will be separate welcome dinners on Tuesday evening, March 12, for CSE and Small Bar attendees. On Wednesday morning, Small Bar attendees who are chief staff executives may participate in a joint breakfast and joint programming in the morning, and Small Bar will host a separate lunch and afternoon programming offsite in which both executive directors and non-executive staff may attend. As always, the CSE Retreat will remain open to executive directors only.

 

 

NABE is also bringing back the Boot Camp for New Executive Directors which will be held prior to CSE Retreat and Small Bar dinners, on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 12. The Boot Camp is geared toward executive directors who have been in their positions under two years.
