Affiliate and Affinity Bar e-Hub


As a key mission, LACBA seeks to foster closeness in the bar community by promoting cross-pollination of ideas and joint programming among Los Angeles County-area bar associations. LACBA has created this e-hub, a virtual home to connect with and serve the "spokes," all Affinity Bar Associations in the county whose members by definition have a certain affinity towards some common causes, characteristics, and/or diversities of all kinds, geographic included.

Members and leaders of all Affinity Bar Associations are urged to use this free e-hub to connect with each other, collaborate in programming, and promote events. For questions or comments on improving this e-hub and its tools, please contact Christine Goodman, LACBA's Vice President, Diversity, Inclusion & Outreach.

As an added benefit, Affinity Bar Associations are invited to formally affiliate with LACBA and become an Affiliate Bar Associations of LACBA.    Click here for details.
