Presenters include Executive Director Deborah O'Regan; Bar Counsel Steve Van Goor; Section/Fee Arbitration Coordinator JoAnne Baker; and CLE Director Mary DeSpain.

Within these broad topics day-to-day questions will be addressed such as each presenter's role at the Bar Association, under what circumstances a new lawyer might contact each presenter, how to best approach communication with Bar Staff, and specific ways to get involved with various committees.
