This month, Fastcase team members could be found at the Bar Leadership Institute sponsored by the American Bar Association in Chicago . Fastcase has been a proud supporter and sponsor of the valuable event for half a decade. Even in our fifth consecutive year as a sponsor of BLI, the team at the ABA continues to impress us with their 3-day program. BLI features programs focused on skill development for bar association leaders from around the country including workshops and panels on management, public speaking and, what else? Social media!
One of the program (and Fastcase) favorites was keynote speaker Judith Glaser, founder of the Creating WE Institute and CEO of Benchmark Communications, Inc. We loved how Glaser applied her expertise in social sciences and human behavior to the inner workings of bar associations. If you’d like more information on Glaser’s presentations or to view some of her prior keynotes, check out her website here.
Looking back on the week, we wanted to say thank you to the ABA for allowing us to take part in such a wonderful program. Not only were we able to sit in on a number of the sessions but we also had the opportunity to meet many of the great current and future bar association leaders. Best of luck to everyone taking office this year, we can tell you’re off to a great start!
