New Orleans Bar Association Meetings & Events

After careful thought and consideration, and to aid in limiting the viral spread, NOBA staff is currently working remotely, effectively closing the office space to meetings and visitors. In addition, all in-person events scheduled for March have been canceled. We will keep you updated on events scheduled for April and May. Be on the lookout for more information in our weekly E-News. If you have previously unsubscribed and would like to opt back in, please email Louis Murphy.  

In the meantime, business will carry on, but virtually. Feel free to e-mail us (click here for a staff directory). We remain committed to serving your needs. 

As we continue to forge through these uncertain times, we call on our members to help us to be the best organization we can be! If you or a colleague has a blog post or article that you would like featured on our social media channels, we ask that you send them to our Communications Director, Marie Thomas
