While the COVID-19 pandemic prevents us from holding an in-person Annual Meeting this year, the State Bar is working to offer key features of the meeting in a virtual format, including the swearing in of Larry McDougal as the new State Bar president, a keynote address, and some of the planned CLE programs. Information on how to register for this online event will be announced soon.
The State Bar Annual Meeting typically attracts more than 2,000 people for two days of live CLE events, section business meetings, law school receptions, and other events that offer a rare chance for lawyers from across Texas to network face to face. While we look forward to this event each year, we believe it is necessary to cancel it this year to protect the health and safety of our members, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors, volunteers, staff, and other attendees as we continue to follow guidance and directives from public health officials.
The State Bar will provide full refunds to all registrants. Meeting registrations and hotel reservations will be canceled automatically; no action by registrants is required. For those who were counting on the Annual Meeting to fulfill their yearly MCLE requirements, a variety of CLE courses are available on the TexasBarCLE Online Classroom, and more are being added frequently as other live events are canceled.
