State Bar of Wisconsin 2020 Annual Meeting & Conference Canceled

After careful consideration, the State Bar of Wisconsin has canceled the 2020 Annual Meeting & Conference.

We hoped that by early June, it would be possible for us to gather at one of our favorite annual events. However, with an understanding of the ongoing personal, professional, and financial challenges all of us are facing, combined with a commitment to protecting the health and safety of our members, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors, and staff – we realized that forging ahead with the 2020 AMC wasn’t possible. With those factors in mind, we made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 AMC.

Some good news? Our goal is to deliver much of the content of the CLE sessions that were planned at the 2020 AMC through alternative channels, such as individual webinars. Watch your inbox for more information as we solidify plans.

Make plans for next year! The world-class AMC will be back better than ever at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells, June 10 & 11, 2021. We look forward to overcoming this crisis and being able to celebrate safely with all of you, in person, next year.

    Hilarie Bass

    After more than 35 years working in the male-dominated field of law, Hilarie Bass realized that companies are not doing their best to utilize all the valuable talent in the workforce. She founded the Bass Institute for Diversity & Inclusion because she knew firsthand that the problem of retaining and elevating women in the C-suite was far from solved.

    Hilarie is a global evangelist for gender parity and an outspoken advocate for expanding the ranks of women leaders at corporations, nonprofits and other institutions. She is also one of the most recognized attorneys in the United States, having served as co-president of the international law firm Greenberg Traurig from 2013 to 2018 and as president of the American Bar Association (ABA) from September 2017 to August 2018. In late 2018, Hilarie left the law profession to launch the Bass Institute for Diversity & Inclusion.

    Throughout her law career, Hilarie fought for greater participation for women in the top ranks of law firms. At Greenberg Traurig, in addition to serving as its president and heading the firm’s 600-member litigation department for eight years, she founded and chaired its Women's Initiative for many years. At the ABA, the world’s largest voluntary professional organization with more than 400,000 members, Hilarie traveled the world speaking about the insidious damage of implicit bias in the workplace and the importance of retaining and promoting female leaders. She also created a task force at the ABA on implicit bias in the justice system.
