Thanks to You 
As our nation pauses to give thanks next week, your NABE staff team here at the ABA wants to take a moment to thank you for your membership, your support and your active participation in your professional organization.  Engaged members (and their dues!) ensure that NABE can provide the services and programs bar professionals depend on in their important role within our American justice system.  NABE Bulletin won’t publish next Thursday and ABA staff offices will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 24-25.  Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
