An Update on AMC and COVID-19

At this time, the State Bar of Wisconsin chooses to remain hopeful that the 2020 Annual Meeting & Conference will be able to take place on June 11 through June 12 as planned. In the meantime, State Bar staff continue to vigilantly monitor updates from public health officials regarding COVID-19. As the dates draw nearer, we’ll be able to make a more informed decision on whether the Conference should be held, given the status of federal, state, and county guidelines for public gatherings in June. In the event that we need to cancel or postpone the 2020 AMC, you would be entitled to a full refund should you decide to cancel your registration.
