RCBA 2021 Member Appreciation Day

Event Description

We hope you will join us for our Member Appreciation Day.  We will be hosting two FREE CLEs for RCBA members, presenting two distinguished awards, and passing of the gavel.

12:00 - 1:00 pm | Great Minds Think Differently (1.0 Elimination of Bias CLE credit applied for)
One of our greatest strengths is the diversity of how our brains think and how we each approach and experience the world around us. Neurodiversity celebrates that strength and diversity among all of us, including those who have cognitive differences such as autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and mental health disabilities. This CLE will dive into the concept of neurodiversity, and how we can accept and support our clients, friends, family members, and colleagues who think differently.

Presenter: Haley L. Moss, Esq., Haley Moss LLC

1:00 - 2:00 pm | Grounding Your Practice in Wellness - Bringing Your Best Self (1.0 Standard CLE credit applied for)

The demands of our practice can bring us out of balance. During this session we will talk about simple ways to right yourself and right your legal practice.

Presenter: Caroline Durham, Warrior Wellness and Durham Law Office
